From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686; en-US; 0.9) Gecko/20010301
BuildID:    2001030105

When sending an attached file (i.e. fcron-1.0.2.tar.gz),
the file could not be untar'd by the recipient :
when saving the file on disk with mozilla mail component,
the file is truncated (27 bytes instead of 109kB).
(even if the component say the mail is 142 kb-sized )

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.send to yourself a mail with a tar.gz'd attached file about 100kB
2.save the attached file on disk
3.try to untar it (and see its size)

Actual Results:  file cannot be untar'd and is truncated

Expected Results:  File is sent correctly.

Confirming on 2001030110 Win2k. The received file is a lot shorter. The first
differing byte is byte #19. I'll attach the tgz file.

cc'ing varada and ducarroz. Could this be related to the necko bug that was
fixed today?  This bug was reported on 3/2. The first time I saw corruption was
in a 3/3 build, but I may not have tried on 3/2.
Should be fixed now. was related to necko bug that cause some part of the
message to be dropped during the send process.

I tried sending a tar.gz attachment yesterday after the fix and it went thru 
fine. I can verify the same behaviour today to be sure and then mark it as 
verified.
