User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; hu; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Thunderbird 3.0

Our mail server cut the mail attachments and insert a file link to the mail. The inserted link is correct but if i wnat to open the link the link doesn't works. In the status bar i see bore slashes. file:\\mail\attach\...in link status bar can see: file:///attach/.. Why happened this. This problem is olso in thunderbird 2.0.0.23. The last correct file link handling was in 2.0.0.17. 

Reproducible: Always

Yes, since 2.0.0.17 doesn't works file links.
Is your mail server an exchange server ? looking at http://www.rumblingedge.com/2008/09/26/thunderbird-20017-released/ I don't see where this could come from.

I supose you could trey 3.0 and let us know if it works better with 3.0 ?

You need to check what has changed after 2.0.0.17 in 2.0.0.23 file, link or directory handling.

 We use debian linux mail server. Our server cuts the attachment and takes an link to the e-mail. Do you know any extension witch can we open the file links? We can't open the file links form thunderbird, we must use Launchy extension to open the links from e-mails. The tunderbird don't use correctly the file links. This problem is still actual on Thunderbird 3.0. The 3.0 is looks very good :) and we still wait for the solution.

Oups ... Thanks for noticing. Issue is bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=458883 which is a security fix.

Gee! Fuzzy summary, no steps to reproduce, no explicit actual/expected results and fuzzy extra information somewhere in comment 9 - this is going nowhere.

zoyi81@gmail.com, please follow the prescribed format for bugs:

STR (steps to reproduce)
1) do this
2) do that
3) ...

Actual result

Expected result
- this is what should happen

Furthermore, please provide the source of a testcase.eml msg with "add an attachment" at top of this bug, after removing private data as required with text editor. thank you.

Ludo,
a) are links to local files (file:\\...) allowed (to work) in received emails by design? (e.g., you mentioned bug 458883 in comment 6)
b) if yes, *do* they work?

That's link so, yes they should - But I'm not sure how we convert these (it should work fro smb shares)

> b) if yes, *do* they work?

No idea ... as I don't have smb shares around and no easy way to test besides sending to myself ...
