Fix apparently-corrupted PDF attachments in Mail
Authored by: ibalbin on Nov 16, '08 02:27:33PM

The problem occurs (with me) on most machines. It manifests itself when I'm either travelling and on a slow connection, or when a whole lot of emails come in at once with attachments. The files are fine on the mail server. If you get another client (such as Thunderbird) to download the messages, it works.

This has been a bug since day one of Mail.app and has consistently not been attended to in my view. My bet is that it's some synchronisation issue with the server and processes not properly completing before closing files.
