Description Chad Feller 2010-05-11 22:20:13 UTC
Description of problem:
attachments are sometimes inaccessible when using the mapi connector.  For instance  I have message X in my inbox, and the paperclip (attachment) icon is next to my message indicating that the message has an attachment.  However, when I click on the message, there is no indication in the message that there actually is an attachment.  That is, there is no option to download or view the attachment.  If I view the same message in OWA, I can see that the message has a pdf attached.

Other messages I can access the attachment perfectly fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on message that has an attachment
Actual results:
no option is given to download or view the attachment

Expected results:
attachment can be viewed or downloaded.

Additional info:

on the message where the attachment is inaccessible, looking at the message source seems to indicate that there is no attachment, so this would seem to be some type of mapi connector failure.  Yet, the attachment flag is being set and that is getting through as the "paperclip" icon is being displayed in spite of this.

attaching two files, one is the console output on a message where the attachments are inaccessible, another is a message where they are accessible.

I cannot reproduce this with PDF attachments on a message created by Outlook, but I can see something going wrong with eml attachments, as stated in the upstream bug. (I'm only letting you know, anything more would be better to deal with in the upstream bug report.)
