Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85860
Cannot view or download attachments.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Viewing a message with attachments does not show the attachments, even if the
option to view attachments inline is selected, specifically selected the view attachment
link also does not display the attachment. Also, trying to download an attachment by
clicking on the download link results in a parse error on line 337 of
/usr/share/squirrelmail/src/download.php. A quick view of this file reveals a simple
bracketing error (I think).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install squirrelmail, view a message with an image attachment (gif, for example), the
message is not displayed inline even if this option has been selected.
2. Click on the view link beside the attachment at the bottom of the message, the
resulting page dose not display the attachment as expected.
3. Click on the download link to save the attachment to your computer, a parse error
occurs on line 337 of /usr/share/squirrelmail/src/download.php.
The attachment should be displayed when view is selected. The user should be
prompted with a save as dialog when download is selected.
A patch to fix the download option is included here:
*** /usr/share/squirrelmail/src/download.php.old 2003-03-09
--- /usr/share/squirrelmail/src/download.php 2003-03-09 17:19:49.000000000

Use 1.2.10-4 from rawhide which fixes this problem.

The download.php file in /usr/share/squirrelmail/src is damaged. The corredt
file can be extracted from the squirrelmail-1.2.11.tar.gz available at
squirrelmail.org. The rpm file should be rebuilt!
I'm having the exact same problem, whether the attachment is a multimegabyte PDF
or a 760-byte text file.
This is a disturbingly glaring error, and I'm surprised it got by QA. File
attachments are an everyday part of using e-mail for many, many people.
When will a fix be issued?
Clarification of my question: When will a fix be issued via RHN? That's why I
pay my subscription money, after all.
A fix will be issued over RHN at some stage.
