Default configuration of fresh images makes partially downloaded e-mail unusable
|Reported by:||stippi||Owned by:||czeidler|
When configuring a new IMAP e-mail account in the Mail settings, the "Partially download messages larger than" setting is enabled and the size is set to 0 bytes. This setting causes mails to be downloaded very quickly, as partial mails. Unfortunately, when opening the Tracker window for the mail box, it does not initialize with an attribute layout suitable for mails. Since there are no actual e-mail files contained in this folder (only partial e-mails that have a different MIME-type), one cannot configure the necessary attribute layout for e-mails. Partial e-mails apparently have only "thread" and "account" attributes defined for them. This makes it impossible to add the MAIL:when attribute column, which in turn makes the whole folder completely unusable, showing thousands of mails sorted by the time at which they were retrieved. The partial mail files do in fact have the correct attributes set on them, so it should be a matter of fixing the MIME-type at installation time. Even more convenient would be to automatically apply a suitable attribute layout to the Tracker window. Didn't R5 do something like that? Or was that only when searching for mails that the Query window had a special layout? Revision is hrev40697.
