Description Ian 2009-03-23 06:11:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Saving attachment from a forwarded message produces an 18-byte
file with some html in it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure you have "Forward messages" set to "As Attachment" in
   Preferences->Composition->General Tab.
2. Send message to self with an attachment (I used .doc)
3. Forward received message to self (should go out as a .eml attachment)
4. On receipt, double click .eml attachment, then right click and save the
   original attached document.

Actual results:
Attachment corrupted (is always a closing body and html tagset)

Expected results:
Original attachment!

Additional info:
Double clicking attachment seems to load into Office fine.
Might, just possibly, be some interaction with dovecot (running 1.1.13)
Running dovecot-1.1.13 as IMAP server.
