email app - cannot send attachements with # in filename

asked 2015-11-15 18:17:28 +0300

I tried to send an gpx trackfile from modrana (20151114#09-25-53.gpx). When creating the mail everything looked good, but in the recieved mail the attachement was missing. I found only the following message in the log.

   Nov 15 14:56:05 Jolla creen[1960]: [W] attachments::addAttachmentsToMultipart:1562 - void
attachments::addAttachmentsToMultipart(QMailMessagePartContainer*, const QStringList&) :
"/home/nemo/Documents/20151114%2309-25-53.gpx" is not regular file. Cannot attach.


At first i played around with changing the extension (to .txt, .log) , but without success. After that i compressed the file, but again no succes.

Then I remembered that I have read here in the forum about a problem with the # character in the filename. (I'm sorry but I can no longer find the post.) But after removing the # from filename Jolla-mail could sent the email with attachement.

Would be nice if this could be corrected in the next release. SFOS should not care about the characters in file name (when they are allowed in filesystem) or there could be an errormessage when adding the file.
