Description of problem:
Send message with PS(Postscript) attachment. The attachment will change after received.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.compose a new email
3.attach an image file which type is PS
4. send it to another email account
The file have changed. (Using "diff" command to check the original file and the received one)
The PS type of file could be sent, received and opened successfully.
Could you please paste here the output of diff? The only thing I see here is adding EOL to the end of the file, which is OK in case of a text file (which application/postscript actually is).

I'm sorry for my unclear description. After my using "diff" commond to check the original file and the received one, there's the output:
\No newline at the end of file
We found this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=163783) and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
The difference is the same as what I could reproduce here. Given that Postscript is an ASCII file, adding EOL to the end of the file changes nothing. I did immerse myself to the RFC MIME definitions and found that they don't deal with this situation at all. So this bug is either NOATBUG or UPSTREAM. I voted for the second option.
We will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
