** Description changed:
Binary package hint: mozilla-thunderbird
Open an old email. File - Save As - File. Name and save (separate
partition, albeit on same physical disk). Thunderbird crashes after an
error box with words to the effect of "failed to save attachment". The
email in question had no attachment. This error cannot be reproduced:
- Restarting and saving the same email again worked perfectly. The only
- quirk worth noting is that I've "archived" (read: save to text) over
- hundred old emails this session - not something I would normally do.
+ Restarting and saving the same email again worked perfectly.
+ Edit: As noted below, the cause appears to be a filename with a colon in
+ it, saved onto a FAT32 disk. Thunderbird normally finds and removes
+ prefixes such as "Re: " and "Fw: ", but sometimes fails - particularly
+ where these are nested ("Re: Fw: ...") or where colons have been used
+ around other text (eg "xxx : xx...").
