User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0
Build ID: 20120420145725

Steps to reproduce:

when I forward an email that contains attachment file with the table in that email it didn't forward the attachment  


Actual results:

it didn't forward the attachment only it forward the email with the table that was in email but no attachment 


Expected results:

when you forward it should forward all email content including the attachment.

Works for me (on 12.0.1 and 15.0a1). Can you attach the email in question? Feel free to anonymize any private data, so long as you can still reproduce the issue with the sanitized version.

That message is improperly-formed. MS Outlook has a bad habit of creating non-compliant messages (specifically, using multipart/related when they should be using multipart/mixed). The workaround is to forward the message as an attachment: Message -> Forward As -> Attachment.

thanks for your help but there is no way around to work on it and fix it or change multipart/mixed to multipart/related or other way around
