Blake - not sure if a duplicate. Duplicate bug states that the attachment is not recognized. This bug says that the entire mail msg is always showing "loading document"

Yeah, I don't think so either. Both this and bug 48374 are unclear...Peter, could you explain more about the problem, and give the build ID, please?

Peter Lairo, are you still seeing this with current nightly builds.
PLairo@cs.com, this WORKSFORME in 20001020, Win95. If you are still seeing this bug in nightly builds, please report back, otherwise we'll close this bug. Gerv
However, mail with attachments doesn't display until the attachments have been downloaded. For people on slow connections, this is very bad. I'm in a LAN and 1.2Mb of attachments took about 2 minutes to download, so either my mail server is slow or Moz is doing this very slowly anyway. This won't make rtm, probably, but it's still totally the wrong behaviour. Gerv

Summary: mail with attachment didn't display → IMAP Mails with attachments don't display until attachments fully download
There is a feature called "mime parts on demand" which loads the msgs, but not the attachments until you click on the attachment icon. See http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41569 for a description. The default is on for new profiles.
MPOD does not seem to be turned on for new profiles, or imported ones, so I've reopened the relevant bug. I have to wait three minutes to see the small text body of a message with a 3Mb attachment. Gerv
MPOD is turned on for new profiles, as I think we've fully established in other bug reports. However, we do download inline attachments, and attachments we can render inline, like .html (and we did this in 4.5). My guess is that this is fixed and should be closed.
is there any reason to keep this bug open?
if you fixed it, close the bug and move on :-)
OK, I'll mark it works for me. It's probably a dup
