This indicates that this is one of the variations of the problems witnessed in v1.4 for bug 981010 which was solved by bug 949941.  Bug 949941 needs a v1.3T (well, really v1.3, but v1.3 probably won't take it I guess) uplift to finish being prepared to address the problem.  (There is also clearly some type of underlying platform issue, but we really want bug 949941 for memory reasons too on Tarako, so let's do that.)

Let's leave this bug open/not duped since it serves as a good 1.3T place-holder to track the need to complete that work.  (And 981010 was only a placeholder bug anyways.)

I should be able to get to finishing the 1.3T patch and testing it by the end of this week, but I'm going to leave this unassigned for now in case anyone else wants to pick it up first.
blocking-b2g: --- → 1.3T?
Oddly enough, I am finding that, although I'm crashing the first time on occasion, by adding more and more large attachments, mail app is nonetheless able to stand up, and I can send the mail.   I'd like to see how this currently looks on master.
Ok, checked this also on Master.  The Picture from Camera actually attaches.  The mail is never sent (but that's another issue :)
:asuth, do we have a spec defining what is the maximum size of a pic that can be added as an attachment ? And do we through an error if the size limit exceeds?

See for details by version and such, but short answer:

Current limit for all attachments in total on a message is ~5 MiB, we will refuse to add whatever attachment pushes us over that limit and display a message.  As I indicate in comment 1, this is categorically a platform issue that has been worked-around in gaia in bug 949941 and that needs the completed patch to be uplifted.
triage: 1.3T+ for a common use case.
Andrew, do you think you can prepare a patch and uplift bug 949941 to 1.3T? Thanks

Looks well, no side effect.
