Is it possible to read email attachment in thunderbird?


Je suis sur beta 7 avec mise à jour.

Est ce qu’il serait possible de pouvoir lire les pièces jointes dans thunderbird ?
En effet, lorsque dans thunderbird, je clique sur la pièce jointe d un mail, elle disparaît.
Et je ne peux y reacceder sur mon pinephone alors que sur mon ordinateur elle ( la pièce jointe n’a même pas disparu)

Thunderbird is not a mobile friendly application.

Alors je dois utiliser quelle application sur mon mobile ? similaire à thunderbird ?

So I have to use what application in place of thunderbird ?

Currently there is no email client for Plasma Mobile, although one is in slow development.

You can still use the webpage of your email service (gmail/outlook/something else) in Firefox.

Firefox is not great in Plasma Mobile either. But Plasma Mobile has Angelfish, which is it’s own web browser, that has support for web apps.

Geary, a GNOME application adapted to Phosh, mostly works under Plasma Mobile. That is what I currently use for e-mails on the PinePhone.

There are some things that rely on popup menus, which (due to Geary being a GTK application) do not work with touch input under Plasma Mobile (see Menu items can not be activated under wayland for certain applications (#3737) · Issues · GNOME / gtk · GitLab). E.g., you cannot switch between rich text or plain text mode without plugging in a mouse (but at least it remembers your choice, so I have set it to plain text with a mouse once and just keep it that way). Address autocompletion also does not work due to the same bug, I have to always type in the full address when I send a mail. (It is frustrating that this annoying issue is still not fixed 8 months after it was reported. It seems to be really hard to debug.) But the rest of the UI works.

Je voudrais savoir pourquoi thunderbird peut lire certaines pièces jointes et d’autres pas? Il y a t il un réglage à faire dans thunderbird pour qu’il puisse lire toutes les pièces jointes ?

I want to know why thunderbird can read some attachment and other not ? Is it something to reglaze on thunderbird who he can read all attachment ?

What file types are the attachments?


Mon problème est avec le format vcf. Peut être qu’il y a d’autres pièces jointes qui ne passe pas mais c’est aujourd’hui ce format qui me cause des problèmes.
