Until you just pointed it out, it didn’t click with me that your post on the other thread was related. It most certainly is. My situation thus far is a slimmed down version of what you reported. I send a picture from one of our apple devices and get 2 attachments, and no body.
I believe eM client should, at very least show the body of the email as email and any pictures, embedded or not, as attachments. This would at least put them in the company of a few others.
Some email clients seem to support the pictures embedded, while other list them as attachments whether the sender embedded them or not.
After reading through the forum, for the most part, it would seem that eM Client stands alone when it comes to showing the body of the message as an attachment. I haven’t done the extensive testing you have, nor do I think it necessary to repeat what’s been already done. I believe forum hearsay is truly reliable enough.
I did ask if someone with access to newer Outlook email, or access to someone that does, to retest the scenario again. It was previously reported that both Outlook and Live mail exhibited the problem. And I just tested Live Mail 2012 ( build 16.4.3528.0331 I believe their last build), it doesn’t show body text as attachment. So perhaps, Microsoft fixed it in both applications.
As of 2016, there is over 1 Billion Active apple devices around the world. I still love my windows based PC, and I run a Linux based NAS, but we also have 3 Active apple devices in our home.
It’s good to hear you chime in on this thread again. Thanks! I was hoping to hear from some more users. I wish this forum had a “Me Too” button that tallied up all users experiencing the discomfort of this issue.
I hope to compile a grand list of email clients that don’t show the body as an attachment. And of course, any that do like eM client. The latter list might only be 2. And then somehow support it with a strong showing of hands from the user base.
Perhaps, providing such a grand list and some user voices would convince the eM Client Executive board that protecting their brand is first and foremost. That means fixing problems with their product trumps new development, thus empowering their developers to bump the fix up in priority such they could show some obligation in the form of a proposed near-future fix date.
With all due respect to eM Client, when things go quite, understandably, things fall under the radar. And when looking at the postings in this thread, most are 2-3 years old. Until recently! I just chimed in on this thread, and your thread began last month. And David on both. As of now, we have 3 voices. I have to wonder if some of the other users on previously on this thread have moved on to other email clients?
