Many Thanks for this useful thread, and special thanks to theodotos for
first pointing in the right direction. This problem drove me nuts for
weeks. My mother regularly sends me important pdf attachments, sometimes
they worked, sometimes they didn't. Even more bizarrely, I use TB on two
different computers, and sometimes when the attachment couldn't be read
on one, it was fine on the other, so the bug is intermittent _and_
inconsistent. I also found that using webmail there was no problem
downloading/reading the same attachments. Changing the TB
mail.server.default.fetch_by_chunks setting to false and repairing the
affected folders immediately fixed the problem for me.
