Description Philip Long 2003-03-27 11:23:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030221 Description of problem: I filed this with ximian, and they gave their response below ... This problem manifests itself starkly under evolution. Evolution treats arriving file (EmergencyAlternate.doc.pgp) as MIME type "plain text document". It is not ascii armored. Saving the encrypted file to disk mangles it in such a way that neither gpg (nor pgp) can then decrypt it. Steps to reproduce the problem: 1. Receive encrypted file with .pgp extension 2. Notice evolution believes that it is plain text though it is not 3. Save to disk Actual Results: Corrupted file on disk Expected Results: Uncorrupted file on disk How often does this happen? Corruption occurs when I received an X.doc.pgp but not when I received a Test.txt.pgp Additional Information: The mozilla mailer is able to save the file off the IMAP server without corruption. A file named EmeAlt.doc.pgp does download correctly. I have _no clue_ how to tell gnome how to interpert the data. The control center file types didn't let me do more than add .gpg to the mime type and let gpg handle the data. (After which evolution asked if I wanted to launch gpg to handle EmeAlt.doc.gpg, the one that was correctly detected. ------- Additional Comments From Jeff Stedfast 2003-03-20 16:29 ------- the problem is gnome-vfs is misdetecting the mime type likely. if we get an attachment that is text/plain, we do charset conversions on it. I don't feel this is a evolution bug. add mime type info to your database so that those files are detected as application/octet-stream rather than text/plain (since they aren't text/plain) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.2.0-1 How reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. See above 2. 3. Actual Results: See above Expected Results: See Above Additional info: See Above

Needs to be reported to bugzilla.gnome.org probably.

Closed upstream, closing here as well. The reporter failed to give a file that would show such a problem.
