Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1
Build Identifier: Thunderbird 1.5.0.9

I have an email address which auto forwards emails to me at another address (as an attachment). When the email is received by TB I can open the first level email, forward it, reply/replay all, move it or copy it to another folder etc. Of course replying to it just sends it back to me!!

However if I open the "attached" original mail it opens in a normal message window  BUT I cannot: move it, copy it, reply to original sender(s) or forward it. Ideally I would like to "move" the attached email to the same folder and then delete the original email (as Outlook allows me to do).

By the way when attempting to play with this TB crashed several times, by crashing I mean it stopped deleting/moving/copying anything. I had to stop TB  and then use Ctl/ALt/Del to kill off a TB process before I could do anything at all. Restarting TB allowed some functionality to return but bug still exists.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Receive a email forwarded as an attachement
2. Open message
3. Open attached message
4. Attempt to Move/Copy/Reply/Reply All/Forward to attached email message => silent fail!
Actual Results:  
fails silently

Expected Results:  
Should allow the attached message to be:

1: replied to
2: replied all to
3: forwarded
4: extracted to a folder as a stand alone message

This could be a duplicate of 22687 in which case it is a long standing and apparently well known bug.

I think basically this is a duplicate of bug 204350 (which has had some fixes for 2.0), or bug 259522 which is about disabling them as they don't work. Or perhaps bug 259522... Take your pick;)
Reporter, does the issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / Shredder trunk nightlies?

(1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is 2.0.0.16)
