Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 284271
Thunderbird does not recocgnize URL's in multi-part messages in MIME format
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
In the most emails, containing hyperlinks in the body, such hyperlinks are
marked by thunderbird.
But in a few such emails, they are not marked. Can somebody explain this?
Especially, if I compose additional other emails to myself containing these
URL's, the are marked after I received them.
I found out that this special email was a multi-part message in MIME format, so
thunderbird did not recocgnize the URL in the body. Why not?
But when forwarding this email is no more "multi-part message in MIME format",
so the URL is recognized.
Bug or feature?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
