that will squirrel the bird.

something you could 'try for the fun of it'. cerate a new subfolder and
*copy* email to it.

close thunderbird and then with a _plain_text_ editor, vi, kwrite, etc,
open email and change 'application/octet-stream' to 'image/jpeg'.

delete '.msf' file associated to subfolder and delete 'panacea.dat' in
your profile directory, '/home/jim/.thunderbird/????????.default/'.

reopen thunderbird and it will rescan your folders. then open email and
click attachment to see if it will open as a '.jpg' file.

i have done a lot of things to modify thunderbird emails, but never
tried above. it may work. it may not. if not, it is problem with
'octet-stream' coding attachment differently from what an 'image/jpeg'
would be.
