Description chris 2007-11-27 12:14:37 EST
Description of problem:
When composing a message in evolution, the Insert->Emoticon menu option inserts
an HTML <IMG> tag in the message which just references the PNG file on the local
machine.  This is useless for anyone reading the message on a non-Linux (even
non-Fedora, or non-Gnome) platform.  It ought to attach the smiley to the
message and refer to the attachment in the <IMG> tag.

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

How reproducible:
Insert an emoticon in an HTML message in the evolution message composer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Ctrl-N or click on "New Mail Message" in evolution main window.
2.Make sure Format->HTML is checked.
3.Choose Insert->Emoticon->Smiley in the body of the message.
4.Send the message.
Actual results:
The body of the message sent contains an HTML tag <IMG
SRC="/usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/emotes/stock_smiley-1.png"> and the message
has no attachments.  Anyone reading the message on a machine which doesn't have
that file in that particular location won't be able to see the smiley.

Expected results:
The file /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/emotes/stock_smiley-1.png should have been
attached to the message, and then the <IMG> HTML tag should have referred to
that attachment.
