Description Armijn Hemel 2007-05-05 10:46:42 UTC
Description of problem:

Whenever someone sends a mail with Apple Mail with an attachment I can't see the
actual attachment. mutt does not have an issue with this. In fact, the
workaround I use is to save the message and then open it in mutt.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. send mail with attachement with Apple Mail
2. open mail with Evolution
Actual results:

Can't open attachment

Expected results:

Open attachment

Additional info:

Maybe it has to do something with a line feed, or the way the attachment is
encoded, or whatsoever.

Is this problem still present on Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?

If so, could you possibly attach an mbox file containing a sample message from
Apple Mail that illustrates the problem?

Comment 3 Emmanuel Kowalski 2007-10-06 17:01:17 UTC
This might be the same bug as 236396.  Is Evolution configured to always display
plain text?  If yes, try setting it to Display HTML when present, which is an
efficient workaround for me.

Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the
information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not
reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional

closed by mistake, please, reopen it with additional information; thanks a lot
