I just tried this on my mac, and it worked fine.

weird that it is not reproducable 100% of the time.

are you sure we aren't sending it properly, or that we aren't displaying it

I bet it is a problem with not displaying it properly, and we lose the content
type on the channel.  (we've got a few bugs like that, especially on news.)

this was read in your IMAP account, not POP right?

once you get into this state, can you see if switching folders fixes it?

if I'm right, it is a bug for mscott, not ducarroz. but I'll want to hear from
jaime before re-assigning.

Actually, I've seen it both in my saved Send folder, and well as on the
recipient's Inbox. Does that help? Do u need to come see my box???

thanks for the test case, sarah.

I was confused.  I thought this was like bug #59449 (see that bug for a screen

ducarroz seems like the proper owner for this.

I can also reproduce that with a Windows build from 2001020220. For some reason, the content type of the 
attachment (the page your are sending) is set to text/plain instead of text/html. This is a message compose bug.

I know what's the problem. I've accidently ifdefed code on non Mac platform (nsMsgAttachmentHandler.cpp, line 402). 
I'll attach a patch soon...
