Description

17 years ago
When I attempt to read this message (spam BTW) it locks up the mail client, but
seems to be fine once I close the window and go back in (as long as I don't re
read the spam message).  Until the window is closed, all actions are queued so
that when the window is closed, they can complete (like the cntl-u to get the
message source).  Using Mozilla 2001081703 (but also happened with mozillla a
couple of days older).  Attaching the  message source.

Message source that locks mail reader
this doesn't cause me to lock up.

I tried saving it as a .eml file (rfc/822) and reading it in the browser and I
tried saving it as a local message folder (berkeley mbox format)

I did notice some weirdness.

<BASE=20
href=3D"file://C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft =
Shared\Stationery\">

ducarroz / reporter, any idea what the extra 20 and 3D are?

when I load the .eml file using Outlook Express, it seems to ingore the 20 and 3D.

in mozilla, it causes us to not show the background image (and it breaks the link.)

over to ducarroz to investigate further.

That's odd.  When it locks my mail client (from reading from the mail server),
it _does_ show the background before it locks.  I just tried your instructions
and I get the same behaviour - if I open it from a .eml file, it does not lock
the viewer (which does not appear to be a mail/news window, but rather a browser
window) and does not show the background.  Anyway you can insert the email into
your mail server as a new message so that you can read it as if it was sent to
you (and thereby with the mail client)?
yes, that's what I did.

I turned it into a berkeley mbox file and put it in my "Local Folders" directory.
