A mail attachment is corrupted when the file is saved.  The same exact mail message using a different client saves the attachment correctly.  In this case, the mail attachment is a Flash video file.  The SeaMonkey saved file will not play, but the same attachment saved with a different client plays fine.  The original file that is the source of the attachment plays fine on the source machine. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Send a Flash video file as a mail attachment.
2.  Save that attachment using the SeaMonkey client.
3.  Note that the saved Flash video file will not play.
4.  Save the exact same attachment with a different mail client and note that the Flash video file plays correctly.
Actual Results:  
The Flash video file is corrupt.

Expected Results:  
The Flash video file is not corrupt.

The correct file size is 4,266,127 bytes, but the corrupt file size is 4,266,554.

Severity: normal → critical
Can you try SeaMonkey v1.1.9 ? (And v2.0a1pre ?)

Can you attach the involved message (including its attached file) ?
Or at least the Flash file ?
So someone can try and reproduce.
NB: If the file is 4 MB, you'll need to zip it, or, probably, make it available on a Ftp/Http site. Or keep it available to email it to someone who would look at this bug.

I am currently running SeaMonkey 1.1.9, but I have not recently received any  emails with large file attachements.  The original Flash video file was very large.

Sorry, I no longer have the email with the large file attachment that caused this problem. 

I am aware of this problem, and if it happens again, I will update this incident.

You may be able to reproduce this problem by attaching any large file that is many MBs in size.

Thanks for your answer.


R.Incomplete. (for now)

Reopen if/when you can reproduce with SeaMonkey v1.1.9.
