Bug 698262 claims that the image was stripped entirely, without trace. Investigate. We should at least insert a hint that there was something, even if we cannot send the image.
Confirming. STR 1 Create new HTML message 2 insert inline image (check "attach this img to the message") 3 Change Options > Format to "Plain Text only" to force plaintext 4 Send Actual result 3 inline image still shown in editor; no warning of any sort; no conversion to real attachment; all formatting still possible (bold, italics, etc) using Keyboard Shortcuts - aren't we in plaintext? (the truth is, it's just html editor without toolbar and some missing menus) 4 inline image is silently stripped when sending - no trace, no warning, just gone. Bad. At least bold, italics & friends are converted to their plaintext equivalents, *bold*, /italics/ etc. Expected 3 Do something about the inline image because plaintext msg can't have inline img (some possiblities; might be combined) - warn and instruct user what to do - autoconvert inline images to real attachments - remove inline img (?) but ensure there's no dataloss 4 At least now when sending, we *really* need to do something similar to 3 above...: warn, autoconvert, or offer to send as html etc... Related bugs are pretty messy so there might be dupes.
Summary: Image stripped when force-sending as plaintext mail? → Inline images stripped when force-sending HTML mail as plaintext mail
Summary: Inline images stripped when force-sending HTML mail as plaintext mail → Inline images silently stripped without trace when force-sending HTML mail as plaintext mail (Options > Format > Plain Text only)
Or, dependent of main problem, Bug 216132.
It would not be TB if all the bugs were not known from time immemorial.
