It seems as if mails cannot be forwarded with their attachments. Each attachment needs to be downloaded and manually reattached. Bug / missing feature?

Thank you!

Errr, any idea of the schedule of the fix? Maybe the title should be changed to contain "Bug" in it to promote the issue a bit?

There are some weird old fashioned command line email programs for *nix like mutt which act linke this per default. Therefore some people will not agree that this is actually a bug. Please keep on voting for this feature.

Option for this will be provided in next updates, already implemented.

Thanks, if attachments are not yet downloaded option two (translated somthing like "do not download and send") is misleading. Should be called "remove attachments and sent". Otherwise the effect of this action (no attachments are delivered) are not clear to dummy user. Otherwise working fine!

When receiving an email with attachments, if I don't download them and I want to forward the email. If I choose "Send without downloading", attachments are not sent, if I choose "Download and send" it's ok. Is it a normal behaviour? In that case, the option "Send without downloading" should be rename as "Send without attachments" or something like Aequanix proposed.

But I think we should have 3 options: - Download and send - Send without downloading attachments - Remove attachments and send

@Tibo - so what's the difference between second and third option ? :)

VDVsx ( 2014-03-26 12:39:58 +0300 )edit

The second option would consist in sending the mail with attachments but without downloading them on your own phone. With the third option, you just forward the email, not the attachments.

@Tibo - That's not possible for many IMAP servers around there, only possible for the ones that have the BURL extensions installed, we have support in the MW but not in UI level yet(low priority for now), when that comes will be transparent for the user if account has support for smart forwarding, no need to provide options.
