PLease test it again with ggv from the last RHE4.5 version. It still didn't
work there. Why you didn't check it?
Why should I pay for a contract If RedHat didn't fix the tools under their OS?
The fact is that I told my users to use other OS for it.
In Microsoft windows GostView work well with the attachment file.
