Reply/forward encoding error with attachment

Hello,

I am experiencing problems related to encoding just when replying/forwarding some emails, and it seems related to attachment. Here is an example:

I received an email with plain text and accents, but without an attachment. The body is the following:

Aquest és un email de test amb arxiu adjunt. Moltes gràcies.

Then, I received the same message but this time with an attachment (plain text file); the body is almost the same.

If I try to reply/forward the email without attachment, the body is shown perfectly, including accents. But if I try to reply/forward the other email, the body is, in this case:

I am not a Go programmer, so I do not know how to solve this. However, I noticed that, at least for forwardings (commands/msg/forward.go), response is handled differently depending on incoming email attachment.

Any idea for this?

Thank you very much anyway.

Aerc currently doesn't handle nested messages.

If you forward the attachment to the next person, you get the encoded, nested email (which looks like the gibberish you showed in the case of quoted-printable)

Okay, is there an easy way to reply/forward email without attachment, and attach files afterwards? As a workaround I mean.

Thank you for the information!

You should simply be able to reply normally without quoting and then attach whatever you like
