Hi,

Using Thunderbird (Versie 1.5.0.7) and made a folder where to save the attachtments.
But there are some attachtments and not all.

When Thunderbird does recieve an attachment, and I don't save it in a particular folder, whre is the attachment ?
Even when I start a searh option with an "attachment name", Ubuntu can't find it.

But when I save the attachtment to an choosen folder, then the attachment can be found !

In that version if memory serves me correctly the ~./mozilla/thunderbird folder is where all mail is saved.

When you click on an attachment you can select Save As and select where it can be stored.

I also recommend upgrading to the 2.0.0.14 Thunderbird. I have a script that will do that for you.

Mmmm oke, it saves it just with the mails. Thanks.
Mmmmm 1.8 Gb that says it all !(inbox)
After the upgrade is that changed ?

Does T saves the attachtments then in a seperate folder ?

Thanks.
