email body is coming through as HTML attachment
Since 68.3.1 emails from one person are coming through ok but when you open the email, the body is blank BUT there is an HTML attachment and when you open this attachement, it opens the email body in your web browswer.
I wonder what software they are writing their emails in. Sort of sounds like Eudora finally failing.Read this answer in context 1

the emails are coming out of my own Magento M2 website, it copies that 'sold' email and sends it to me as a notification. Been working ok for years but it's only for emails that come from the Magento website, everything else is ok
I am not sure HTML is included here, but check that the message body in the view menu is set to original HTML.
While you are on the view menu, check that show attachments inline is ticked.
Might be that the HTML attachment was shown inline before and is not now.
Hi Matt, thanks for the ideas. Both are already set like that from default. I've upgraded to 68.4.1 and it's the same. I logged into webmail for the account in question and the emails are displayed correctly, it's only when they're bought into Thunderbird. Cheers. Noel
From the release notes for TB 68: "Textual attachments (plain text, HTML, XML, etc.) are no longer displayed inline. Toggle preference mail.inline_attachments.text to display them inline again."
Tools/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor, double-click the preference to toggle its value.
