Conirmed. Sylpheed won't show attachments at the
top of the message view that it knows to be plain
text files. It prints them instead at the bottom.
I agree that this behavior is confusing, for I my-
self have missed important information because of
it. I think it would be an improvement if Sylpheed
listed all attachemts at the top of the message
view. Should the user want to peruse the contents
of a plain-text attachment the old way, he still
find it at the bottom.
I believe you can set a test e-email to this list
demostrating the behavior. The option:
Configuration -> Common preferences -> Display -> Attachment ->
Show attached files first on message view
should be enabled. As everybody can see, it does
not apply to all types of attachment.
Please, do not forward replies to my e-mail.
