Attached file testcase
I see one regression between 3.0.3 and 3.1b1: some attachment isn't display properly (maybe when is send by outlook?).

I have 2 messages that are affects by this issue: both are displayed right with TB 3.0.3 and wrong with current 3.1b1 (as inline and not into attachments pane).

ps: I have attached here an email testcase that I have received from my friend (I have deleted personal informations).

Note also that the test message loses its attachment icon in the message pane after opening (inline display) in 3.1b1.

I /think/ this belongs on the 1.9.2 branch... not sure if there's a practical difference yet, though.

Just ran across this again while testing another bug -- Lanikai can *create these messages itself*, just by sending a message with an attachment. (I sent a simple message to myself, from Lanikai, with a single PPS [PowerPoint Show] file attached; Lanikai displayed the attachment inline.)
I'm inclined to raise the severity accordingly, although this may not quite be justified; note especially that it's impossible to do anything with the attachments displayed this way. On consideration, I do think this should be major: a reasonably standards-compliant MUA can create these emails without much difficulty, and Lanikai is unable to handle them properly at all.

Oh, and actually I reproduced with Thunderbird/3.0.3 ID:20100227143138, not 3.0.2, sorry. (Stale canned-clipboard data, oops.)

Jie, can you have a look to see if this was caused by the changes in bug 532603?  Thanks!
I believe this will be fixed by the patch in bug 538407, which will land today, and this is most likely a dup of bug 538407.
Yeah, I believe this was caused by my fault and should have been fixed. Please try next beta and if this bug is still there let me know.
