Note: I'm still on but I suspect this to affect 3.1.0 as well.

Every once in a while I recieve a mail with a small PDF attachedĀ¹. Sometimes besides further attached files, sometimes it's the only attachment.

After downloading the attachment label states 'downloaded' and displays 0 B as size. Tapping to open, Documents tells me that the file is damaged and can't be read. It's listed in the file overview as a file of 0,1 Mb.
Checking the file with FileBrowser gives me 115,44 kb as size.

zero byte attachment

There is no way to ever get this file downloaded correctly again. Deleting it from within Documents or manually from the folder mail_attachments won't help.

I have to use a another device (e.g. laptop) to be able to see the file.
Downloading it there, the actual file size turns out to be 84,4 kb.

1: Unfortunately it's an order reciept containing personal data, so I can't provide it.
