You can retrieve it
Authored by: geoffsaulnier on Nov 14, '01 06:53:45PM

If you have opened the attachement (MIME encoded into the mail) and not opened any other attachements (I think - haven't checked that), you should be able to find the attachement from the terminal, and maybe from within the app that opens the attachement. Take a look at this:

[citycomp:~/Library/Mail/Mailboxes] geoff% cd INBOX.mbox/
[citycomp:Mail/Mailboxes/INBOX.mbox] geoff% ls
Even_cows_get_it_wro.mimeattach/ mbox.SKindex-citycomp-269
Info.plist table_of_contents
mbox
[citycomp:Mail/Mailboxes/INBOX.mbox] geoff% cd Even_cows_get_it_wro.mimeattach/
[citycomp:Mailboxes/INBOX.mbox/Even_cows_get_it_wro.mimeattach] geoff% ls
damnsnow1.mpg
[citycomp:Mailboxes/INBOX.mbox/Even_cows_get_it_wro.mimeattach] geoff%


As you can see, the clip is available in INBOX which is where the mail was that it was opened from.

Cheers,
Geoff.
