(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.

Esther, can you see if someone can reproduce this with Oliver's attachment. Nominating nsbeta1
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.
Linux (2001-07-06-04-0.9.2) Verified. The bug is gone.
