E-mail message with multiple message sections

I've found that it flickers once per visible message section.  The included
message causes several flickers.

Comment 3 Andre Klapper 2007-08-03 20:45:47 UTC
seems like this only happens with long messages. my wild guess is that it has to
do with the workaround to not display large messages that was introduced in
2.9.x in order to avoid a DoS, see

I can reproduce this even with short message, but with many attachments. It's
because of creating preview in separate thread and each multipart is added when
parsed, so it flicks (as far as I know).

Targetting this for Fedora 9.

Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2009-01-27 17:09:59 UTC
We fixed the flickering for long messages awhile back.

When rendering the message in comment #1, I see the message border flicker a couple times but it's hardly noticable.  I see no flickering at all when rendering the message in comment #2.

Sangu, can you confirm?

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

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 information.
