From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.1) Gecko/20010607 BuildID: 2001060703 When I try to attach a file that is on an UNC path (e.g. \\server\share\directory\file.doc) sending fails. Saving the message to drafts does not work either. Copying the file to be attached to c:\temp and sending from there works fine. Netscape 6.01 has the same problem (on send the composition window is simply refreshed). Outlook Express (during the same user-session, file-permissions etc the same) has no problems attaching and sending the same file. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Put a file on a shared network folder. 2.New composition, make sure network folder is not mapped to a drive letter. Browse and attach the file. 3. Press "send" Actual Results: On pressing send: Alert: Sendig of message failed On closing the composition and saving to drafts: Sendig of message failed Result: Message was not sent and not saved to Drafts. Expected Results: Attached and sent the file (Doh! : )
using build id: 2001062806 win98 I attached the a file from a shared network folder which did not have any letter mapped to the drive and did not see any sending problems. I opened a new compose window and select attach file. I browse through network neighborhood, selected a share folder and file from that folder. I tried sending the message and it had no problems sending.
Reporter, Is this still a problem in recent builds? What is your outgoing smtp server settings?
Latest I tried was 0.9.1, unfortunately I will be away for a few days. I will get back to this on monday and try whatever build is available then.
