The message gzipped and attached to this report is diplayed incorrectly(?)
by squirrelmail. The mail contains yet another attached mail, but
SquirrelMail displays the attached messages source code instead of nesting
the messages.

Despite this Kmail displays the message correctly!

    Meanwhile I noticed that even the - otherwise very clumsy - builtin mail client of my Nokia 5800 displays this message the desired way. Why can't SM? Is it a malformatted message? Can you include some fix in next SM relelases?

     
  • I can see what the issue is, and it might be a bit of a pain to fix, though I'll take a look. What's happening is that SM is looking for a part of the message that it can display. Unfortunately the first main part is listed as a message, and there is nothing to display there, so it starts to walk the attachments. It then looks for the first non attachment/message part in the attachments, which in this case is a multi-part message part. That in itself has no content as it's just a wrapper for other parts, so attempts to display those, which in this case is the RFC822 formatted message body.
