I can't view an RFC-822 data [message/rfc822] e-mail attachment. When i double-click on the attachment, i get the "downloading" dialogue that wants me to choose an action for this file. The data should be viewable in Mozilla since it's just plain text. I see that there are other RFC-822 bugs in Bugzilla, but none of them seem to pertain to the ability to view content. I'm using build 2001052908 on Linux.
not sure if this is for mscott or ducarroz. but it sounds related to some stuff that they were discussing recently.
when I try to open a .eml attachment in a message, it opens the content in a stand alone browser window just like 4.x. Is this not what's happening for you?
the only difference I see between 6.1 and 4.x is that in 4.x, we display a nicely formated message while in 6.1 with display the raw data.
I will have to search for the message i had the trouble with, but it didn't have an .eml extension. The attachment was identified as [message/rfc822] in the attachment list box. As i reported, i couldn't view the attachment at all. Mozilla forced me to save it and view it in a text editor.

I have a similar problem (win2k, 2001100303). The message displays fine until it gets to this part in the source: ------=_NextPart_001_0002_01C14BEB.21063FE0 Content-Type: message/rfc822; name="what a difference a day makes.email" Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="what a difference a day makes.email" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable and then it doesn't show the attached email - not even as raw plain text. This is within IMAP viewing, but also if I drag the mail.eml file onto mozilla, I get the same view.
Still not working properly! When I open, direclty from the mail display window, an rfc822 attachment, a new brower window open but the message is displayed as raw!
Bugs targeted at mozilla1.0 without the mozilla1.0 keyword moved to mozilla1.0.1 (you can query for this string to delete spam or retrieve the list of bugs I've moved)
Can we get this bug a Mozilla 1.0 keyword? I can't imagine Mozilla (or any other email application for that matter) being considered (feature) complete if it can't properly display RFC-822 data properly!
I just tried the following with 1.1R under Win 2000: - received a message with a message/rfc822 attachment - opened the message/rfc822 attachment To my surprise, MozMail opened a web browser window with the raw contents of the attachment in it. I expected, as would every other user, MozMail to simply open the attachment as a message window. I notice that this is marked as for the Linux OS and the target milestone has slipped behind. Perhaps these should be updated (not to mention someone fixing the bug).
Shouldn't this have the dataloss keyword - if you can't see it, sounds like lost data to me! Hopefully that would also get it back on the radar for 1.2. BTW, where is the right place to nominate bugs for 1.2 (or others if it doesn't make it by then)?
We have another open bug about opening the attachment into a mail display window instead of a browser window... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 143565 ***
