How to fix – Email with attachment xls, doc send by Thunderbird open in text editor like notepad, word pad etc,

January 5, 2012 2 comments

Some times, document file send from Thunderbird (xls, doc, etc) open in text editor (Notepad, word pad, gedit).

This strange behavior is due to setting wrong “content type” in mail by Thunderbird. The problem can be detected from go to menu –> view –> message source.

Check “content type” for specific file as below picture. It is given as text/plain.

To fix this, exit Thunderbird & delete “mimeTypes.rdf” from Thunderbird profile directory[done from sender side].

or Save the specific mail & edit to appropriate mime type in “content type” of email received in a text editor.

To view Thunderbird attachment in html formatted messages with inline or embedded images.

Thunderbird will not display attachment like pdf , doc etc if mail is formatted html with embedded images.

Go to view menu —> Message body as —-> change to all body part.

reload message to access your attachment.
