10.3: Don't drag and drop attachments to/from Mail
Authored by: kconboy on Nov 17, '03 11:17:24AM

10.3: Don't drag and drop attachments to/from Mail
Authored by: twenex on Nov 17, '03 11:34:47AM

I just sent two identical emails, one with each method (D&D, Attach) and the results were identical. I'd suspect it merely doesn't send the resource fork in the case that the file has one, which tends to mess up Windows users 'cause they see two files not one, one of which is readable, the other is "garbage" to them.

I send a PDF'd x-mas list to my mother in-law who thought she was missing something as two files showed up in her email, one that did nothing. I'm assuming the "send Widows friendly..." bit will keep out that erroneous extra attachment.

I will definitely make use of this for emailing my less-than cyber-fluent Windows using relatives in the future to save me from an erroneous extra explanation ;)
