Can't fwd an email msg due to div tag in HTML signature file
build 2000081608, POP, Win95 In general I can fwd any message in my inbox, except for this ONE message. I'll attach it. Only things unique about this message that I could see are: > the message has already been forwarded several times before it got to me. > original message was written using a different email system (I think) > when I try to forward it, the mail compose window opens but puts all except for the last fwd comment into an attachement (can't bring it inline). Reproduce steps: > select this particular message, click "Fwd" > in mail compose window, notice that all except the last comment is attached as a separate file (Note, you can also use the menu to chhose "fwd inline" and the results are the same) > click "Send", the dialog opens about if I want to send it as html, etc, then click "Send" again > nothing happens. It is not sent, the mail compose window just sits there.
mark it Netscape only - msg looks like it talks about a security problem
Can someone try this out and see if it's reproduceable?
I had john send me a folder with that message in it so I could see the message as he was seeing it. I reproduced the problem, so I copied the folder with the bad message to my 4.7 pop account and tried to forward it from there. I get a Netscape error "A communications error occurred. Please try again", and it doesn't send. Not sure what the problem is, Scott do you have any ideas.
I think I tracked this down (thanks to Peter). The problem is in Michaell's signature. In the source it shows he uses <div class="signature">, in an old composer bug 33213 it states using <div> causes problems. In one comment it was suggested using <p> instead of <div>, so I tried that. I edited this bad message in notepad, preplacing the <dev> with <p>, saved it, retrieved it. It visually looked the same and I was able to Forward it. So this could be a duplicate of bug 33213 but I'll let ducarroz review this and give his comments.
remove b3 need repro info for evaluation by mailtriage Great work, Peter and Esther!
Whiteboard: [b3 need repro]
<div class="signature"> was added by Message compose until few weeks ago. We don't do this anymore. But, I wont be surprised if somebody add a div in his HTML signature file. Therefore we should find a fix to this problem...

Testing with Mozilla 0.9.6, this bug seems INVALID. I tested forwarding as the three types of Inline as well as Attachment and all emails went out and came back in properly. The following was my test message: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html lang="en" xml:lang="en-CA" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <title>An email.</title> </head> <body bgcolor="#ffffff"> Foo. Bar. <div class="signature"> See the error? </div> </body> </html>
I also tried forwarding this mail and had no problems. Tried as attachment and inline and it worked...

Is this still a problem since it is in the 1.0 rel notes? Otherwise I would advice it to be removed from there.
