Steps to reproduce: 1. Compose a new email 2. Fill out the recipient email address and the subject 3. Choose Attach -> Web Page 4. Enter the URL to a page that is protected with HTTP Basic Authentication 5. Send the email Expected result: Thunderbird should prompt for a username and password and send the password protected page. If the server does not accept the credentials, i.e. if it sends another 401 Authentication Required response, the sending should be aborted. Actual result: Thunderbird attaches the 401 error page. The user isn't informed that something went wrong a may not notice the error. If I want to show somebody a specific page, I would usually send them the URL instead of attaching the page. But if I know that the recipient doesn't have access to the specific URL, I would attach the page instead. So when attaching password protected pages doesn't work, the "attach web page" feature isn't that useful to me. I am using a fresh CVS trunk build.
