Attachments

Tried this function and it didn't work. Had a closer look and you have to Browse, locate the attachment and click Upload.
It then worked fine.
In SM they just attached automatically, nothing else to click. Don't know if this is of any importance to anyone but I just thought that I would mention it.
BTW am I the only lady trialer (excluding staff)?

From the invited VIPs I think that's the case, though purely coincidence.

Re: Attachments

Attachments are a bit dicey.
I tried to upload a 14MByte attachment - screen locked up for ages, then came back, no error messages etc.
Also when you do open an attachment from a received email it opens an additional window which has to closed by clicking on [close].

Re: Attachments

Jeremy - did your attachment appear in the body of the e-mail? Mine did and I tried it twice. I could, however, click on the paperclip and it opened in another tab, as did yours. I prefer attachments to be opened just on a click rather than pre-opened in the e-mail.

Re: Attachments

No - the attachment did not appear in the body of the mail.
I have my mail set to send standard ascii - but to receive html format if necessary.
I've added 3 attachments to show what happens when I download the attachment (a pdf file).

Re: Attachments

Tried attachments again using plain text and they still appear in the body of the e-mail so if I am doing something wrong, perhaps I could be corrected?

I've just worked out what's happening.
If I click on an attachment, a new browser window is opened - with the top part being the Plusnet and Beta "sticker" in it.
Underneath is a large box with a thin border.
This window is used to ask me what I want to do with the file (attachment).
After I've done this, Roundcube forgets to close the Window it's opened to allow it to send a dialogue box asking me what I want to do with the file.
Feel free to send me an email to

Re: Attachments

Yes, that is exactly what is happening when I have done it. Currently I am on plain text for sending and receiving and yet still the photograph comes in the body of the text, not as a simple attachment.

Re: Attachments

I'm using Firefox on Linux (Ubuntu) as my browser - could that make any difference?
