Re: [Evolution] Some attachments don't show up in evolution.

In the example you gave the only thing that is supposed to be showing up
is a 0x0 inline frame (an <iframe>).  Trust me it is showing up.  The
part that claims it is wave file is referenced by the iframe so
evolution doesn't show a save widget for that part, this is same way it
treats inline images.  This is a very reasonable way to interpret this
intentionally broken message.

One way I can think of that might improve the situation is to check the
mime type of the part and compare it to the mime type that gtkhtml
requests on that stream, see the difference and add the the save part
widget since it doesn't match.  On the other hand I'm not sure if it is
really worth the effort.

My original post to this thread referenced the example on the Ximian
users list. I didn't want to forward a virus to this list.

I think the answer I'm getting is that there are changes being made to
evolution that may fix this in a future version (?)

It could be related though.  a multipart/related base part that doesn't
reference the parts that follow.  Without seeing the mail I cant' really
say though.  The 'attachment' icon is determined pretty simply too,
based on the type of parts in a multipart, it ins't always accurate.

That multipart/related fix didn't make it into stable afaik either.

I curious as to why some attachments (seems to be the virus ones on the
Ximian users list) don't show up in evolution (1.0.3)

Several of the recent Outlook viruses have mangled MIME syntax to
trigger various Outlook bugs. Evolution is doing its best to display the
message according to the inconsistent description it's given.

There was a problem that messages composed in "rich text" mode in
Outlook and then auto-converted to HTML by Exchange would show up
without the attachments in Evolution (because Evolution was displaying
what the message *said* to display instead of what it *meant* to be
displayed). That's definitely fixed in Evolution 1.2 (and hacked around
in Connector 1.0), but I don't remember if the fix made it into
Evolution 1.0. But this is probably not what you're seeing if you're
talking about virus mails.
