Created an attachment (id=315805)
--> (http://bugzilla.novell.com/attachment.cgi?id=315805)
screenshort of messages being forwarded in various ways

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.0.13)
Gecko/2009080200 SUSE/3.0.13-0.1.2 Firefox/3.0.13

If I do not forward an email as inline then Thunderbird will create an
attachment .eml and this is full of MIME looking garbage unopeneable even by
Thunderbird.
This is especially a problem when forwarding two or more messages as one email
as it results in garbage for all forwarded messages. In the case with multiple
messages being forwarded, if I open the attachment then a new window is opened
but it still contains garbage.

Example in a screen shot.
* The top three messages from left to right are a test message, that message
forwarded as an attachment and finally forwarded inline
* The bottom messages are the is a forward of two emails, original test message
and the test-forwarded-inline, and then I have double clicked on the
attachments.
