Error forwarding attachments...
Good day everyone,

A problem has come to my attention. When users forwarding a message that contains an attachment whose filename contains spaces generates the following error:

We are unable to locate the attachment!

Clicking on the attachment link in the list yields:

The filename entered is invalid. Please limit your attachment filenames to letters and numbers only (x:/xxxxx/cgi-bin/data/users/xxxx/x/xxx/upload/5d6b5877c7eb99758cd632be6db8fe04/Eppco%20site%20100.jpg).

Everything works fine from Read. Only forwarding has the problem.

Given that attachment filenames are out of the users control and saving the attachment locally and re-attaching it would be an inconvienance, how difficult will it be to implement functionality to convert spaces to underscores in the processing of attachments, and/or the option to forward the origional encoded message as an attachment?

GMail version 2.0.6



Regards,

Jason
