Hmmm, afaik threading works for replies only, but they don't contain the original attachments? Can you be more specific about the workflow you're thinking of?

Well, I've noticed that removing an attachment by editing it as a draft you lose not only the "From:" header but also the "References:" and "In-Reply-To:" headers which will break threading when moving the message back to the original sub-folder.

Hmm, I cannot reproduce that. I copied a message into Draft, removed an attachment and sent it to myself localhost, and it was added properly in the thread, with both headers being there. I used the latest CVS 2.3.10. I think this is more like usual create and postpone, btw.

Of course, this is only for a message that is part of a thread.

Well, my question was more about a situation when you actually need to remove an attachment. The only workflow I could think of was

- you receive a message with attachment's a, b and c;
- you want to forward that message as attachment, but only with, say, attachment b, i.e. you must find a way to remove a and c.

But you might still choose to save attachment b to disk, forward the message inline (which doesn't add any attachments) and attach b to the new message. Unfortunately, you will loose the envelope and (if any) a RFC2633/RFC3156 signature here.

Did I get your point here?
