Used 07-17-09-M17 commercial build:

When trying to read message with a 8MB text attachment,
It's not displaying 8MB text attachment completely from the messages body and 
stop at 77%.

1) Login to an IMAP mail account.
2) Tried to read/receive an attached message with 8MB text attachment.
3) Actual Results: Not displaying 8MB text attachment completely from the 
messages body and stop at 77% on the status bar.

Expected results: Should display the 8MB text attachment completely from the 
message body.

P.S. I didn't find a existing bug for this problem, so just log for tracking 
this problem.

Hi Scott,
I tried looking at a message like this from a local mail folder and it rendered 
fine, but I keep getting stuck on IMAP.

Does this happen for other 8MB attachments such as a gif?  If it's only text,
then we'll minus this.  If it's every 8MB attachment of any type, then we'll
plus it.

By using the 08-15-08-M18 commercial build for new profile:
Attched a 5.5 MB jpg file -- progress bar will complete at 100% and the 
image will display completely.
Attached the 9.3 MB jpg file -- From the progress bar, it stop at 80%, but the 
file seems display completely.
Thanks Peter for helping for those jpg files.

works fine per other attachments.  Perhaps just isolated to this case.

adding mail3 keyword. this is important to fix, if it's some sort of race
condition or other architectural problem exposed by the large size of the attachment

Not only depend on the size see this problem also with smaler attachments.
I think its depending on the content. Also saving some Word document's don't
work Proberly only partial contents was saved.
