(1 attachment, 1 obsolete attachment)

STR (affects both plaintext and HTML mail):

1)  Compose a new mail, and attach a Filelink for Dropbox
2)  Convert the Filelink to use YouSendIt instead

What happens?

The old Filelink URL remains in the body of the message.  When the conversion completes, the new URL is appended, and the old one still persists.

What should happen?

When converting, the old attachment URL should go away permanently.

this patch doesn't apply - does the patch for 742538 need to go first? Or vice versa?
Depends on: 738299

Patch v1

+ * Test that if we convert a Filelink from one provider to another, that the
+ * old Filelink is removed, and a new Filelink is added for the new provider.

This tests both html and plain text compose, right? Probably should add that to the comment.
