Description

11 years ago
I recently got an email with the Subject line, "Your order has shipped from Amazon.com".

I tried to forward this message to someone else, but as (1) they read their email on a Windows MUA, (2) they run some anti-virus software with maximum paranoia cranked up, and (3) the original email was sent as attachment had been named "Your order has shipped from Amazon.com", the AV filters at the receivers end went ape because the attachment name ended in ".com".

I suggest we add a suffix like .eml to the name, or come up with an entirely different method of naming the attachments that isn't dependent on the Subject: lines of the attached messages.

You're in luck, this has been fixed in the 2.0 beta builds.
