Messages sent from Apple's Mail that have attachments (anywhere but at the very
end of the email) show up horribly broken in Thunderbird. If, for example, I
send an email from Mail and attach a picture in the body of the message and
write some text underneath it, Thunderbird will simply not show that text I
wrote. Instead, it shows the rest of my message as one or more text attachments.
This behavior is simply not acceptable. Please make Thunderbird compatible with


I have an IMAP account that I use with both Mail and Thunderbird. Thunderbird,
however, doesn't show all my custom folders/directories and some of the ones
that it does show, they aren't in the correct hierarchical structure. You may
contact me for further information about this. I could send you screenshots of
the folder list from Mail and from Thunderbird, but I would just recommend
experimenting with the two apps on one IMAP server yourself.

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
