Emails with text/html attachments are not showing the attachments inline. When trying to open the text/html attachments, a dialog comes up that says: This file has mime type text/html and cannot be viewed using Mozilla. You can open it with another application, or save it to disk. Shouldn't mail be able to handle html attachments a little more smoothly than this?
Does that attachment really have the text/html mimetype? Or is it attached as something wacky? That dialog has a known truthfulness problem....
I think you may right... Netscape 4.61 reports the file's mime type as application/octet-stream. The file is called "blah.htm", and it really is an HTML file, despite the octet-stream type it was assigned. Netscape 4.61 does not render the attachment inline but will open a Communicator window without complaint to view the attachment.
Yes, I think I agree with that. Certainly there's some bug 46655 going on here: the mime type is actually application/octet-stream but it's reported as text/html. And quite possibly if bug 52441 were addressed and Mozilla could associate .htm files with the text/html mimetype, this problem might disappear.
