Two nice checkins for Mozilla Thunderbird

Two really nice checkins happened for Mozilla Thunderbird yesterday.

Backend for stripping mail attachments
The backend for stripping mail attachments from messages got cheked in. This is an important step in the direction of getting bug 2920 fixed. Bug 2920 is "Delete attachment from mail message in folder (remove/strip attached files from email messages)". The front end for this has not landed yet.

New feed subscription dialog
The other checkin is about the news feed subscription dialog. The dialog lacked a lot and it seems that the new dialog have all the stuff I missed. Read more about the new redesigned dialog in bug 281237. A screenshot of the new dialog is also available.

Maybe I didn't get the attachment thing but wouldn't it be nice to define an attachment folder where every attachment is automatically extracted to after receiving the message?

Re: Pete

This very bad idea. Feature like this allows to deliver to known disk location files. Combined with some way to execute file from local disk, it's a recipe for security disaster. /think outlook express and eudora/

It is a pain in the ass having to make it manually everytime, if you donīt like or donīt want to have your e-mail folder get bigger and bigger because of huge attachments with images, movies, PPTs and whatever. I have been using Eudora [does that] for 10 years and NEVER had a single problem with security. Peteīs comment is great, it is!
