Steps to reproduce:

Received successive e-mails with large attachments ... usually photos.

Have been living with this problem for some time.  It is not a one-time occurrence.


Actual results:

The second e-mail shows up in the e-mail list with it's unique name, but when "clicked" to read and see the e-mail and attachments, it has the name and content of the prior message.  The content and attachments of the second e-mail are lost.

My work-around is to ask folks sending successive e-mails with large attachments to insert a "buffer" dummy e-mail between the two e-mails.  The dummy then gets the bad pointers and the following e-mail arrives intact.


Expected results:

Should have two complete e-mails in the input list that retain their original names and their attachments.

What happens if you repair the folder where those email are stored ?
