Build ID: 20110615151330

Steps to reproduce:

received a mail from German telecommunication provider T-Mobile (Deutsche Telekom) with a hint for an MMS (multi media message) sent to my mobile but not accepted due to limited caps on that mobile phone. (i further had to visit their server to forward that MMS to my mail account).

i received that mail on my mail account with an embedded link to the mail attachment (in HTML mode) and with no hint to the attachment in text view mode.
there were at no time any attachments.

the link looked like this:

imap://firstname%2Elastname@server:993/fetch%3EUID%3E/INBOX%3E37528?part=1.3&filename=text_0001.txt

the source of the mail looked in the critical part like this (my best guess is a missing line break between the embedded message and the embedded image afterwards:

Actual results:

when clicking on the link a dialog opens to tell me i should use an external application for opening imap links - i then selected the Thunderbird executable from my file system. then it should have opened but nothing more happened


Expected results:

i would have liked to see the text in question as an attachment in text view. (this might be already a duplicate report - but its not totally sure its the absolutely same case since HTML fails as well so testing this special variant might still be needed)

i would have liked to see thunderbird directyl opening imap links without questions.
i would have liked to see the thunderbird executeable beeing able to deal with imap links and doing something - at least telling that this is a "not/not-yet supported" format for the command line.
can we have the headers too ? and I'm not sure I understand your issue. You're trying to open a link to a server from a folder of another account/server ?
