It is not an issue with inline or attached. The attachment gets chopped
off while it being sent. The size was about 3MB. The recipient got an
attachment that was 32KB. I think this happens only when the SMTP server
is remote, i.e. more than few hops away. So there is some response and
network delay introduced. When the transmission finally begins, it goes
OK for a while, and then some evolution thread seems to kick in and
clear out the data buffer that is being sent. So evolution sends an end
of data signal.
I just did some testing and reproduced this. I also got some truncation
of a file using the local sendmail, not just a remote SMTP server.
Admittedly, the truncation was only 57 bytes, as opposed to 5003055
bytes when sent via SMTP, but it's certainly far from the ideal.
I've added a hefty annotation to bug 6024, and am happy to provide any
information necessary on this one.
