[Evolution-hackers] Content-Disposition for images in the signature

Hi there,

When you add an image to your HTML signature, it'll make the
content-disposition "attachment" and it'll set the filename header.

Both actions are incorrect: the content-disposition is inline and
there's no need to set the filename header. Both will make E-mail
clients like Outlook, but also Evolution itself, think that the E-mail
contains an attachment (a file attachment).

I have seen Evolution do this wrong for all kinds of inline embedded
images, whenever you insert this into your HTML document. This is
incorrect behaviour and not conform MIME.

ps. For a free software E-mail client, I think the better option is to
go with the specifications. That Outlook gets things wrong is not a good
excuse. Although I think modern E-mail clients like Outlook are getting
this right nowadays.
