Need option to choose attachment encoding (content-type; content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit, base64 etc
.), esp . for plaintext attachments (e .g . diff or code files)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20090911 Fedora/3.5.3-1.fc12 Firefox/3.5.3 Build Identifier: thunderbird-3.0-2.6.b3.fc11.x86_64 (originally filed as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=523911) Thunderbird doesn't seem to offer an option to chose the type of encoding attachments. E.g. thunderbird seems always base64 encode '*diff' attachment. Also doesn't allow me to specify character encoding of text/plain attachment. This practice is frowned upon in developer mailing lists, because it renders reading *.diff's hard. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Attach a *.diff to a mail 2. send it to yourself. 3. Check the mail's source Actual Results: Sent mail contains a base64 encoded attachment: ... Content-Type: text/plain; name="foo.diff" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: attachment; (and Content-Type doesn't contain paramter charset=...) Expected Results: both attachment type and enconding of text/plain are chgebeable
Summary: no option to choose attachment encoding → Need option to choose attachment encoding (content-type; content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit, base64 etc.), esp. for plaintext attachments (e.g. diff or code files)
