User-Agent: Opera/9.63 (Windows NT 5.1; U; de) Presto/2.1.1 Build Identifier: version 18.104.22.168 (20081105) Detect file changes after closing of a called program. Alternative thunderbird can simply move the file afterwards into recycle bin of windows. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. receive Wordfile 2. open word by double clicking the attachment 3 [review]. change things and save the file in word (not save as...) 4. close word and thunderbird Actual Results: The filechanges are lost, with no possibility to recover. Expected Results: 1. The changed tempfile should be recognised and user should be asked to move the file to own documents. or 2. all tempdata should be moved to system recycle bin instead deleting them. So there is at least a possibility to recover the data. or 3. lock the tempfile so no software can modify it. Ideally the programm would grump to the user if he wants to save his changes in the temp dir. A variation of user error: User receives wordfile, opens via tempfile, change, save and quit word. To send the changes back my father *forwarded* the (he thought) changed originalmail back to me. Detection of a change in tempfile would have solved this error, too.
Not a problem with thunderbird3. Tmp files are opened readonly, so you won't loose anything.
