I've received an email in three parts, as the sender must have thought the attached PDF file (of 84KB) was somewhat large.. The parts are annotated with
Content-Type: message/partial. Gmail appears to be unable to deal with this; the contents of the message itself is displayed properly when opening the first email, but the attachment is not available for download in one piece.
I've since reconstructed the PDF by viewing the source, concatenating the contents and base64-decoding, but I'd like to know if there is a better solution.
message/partial something we should all quickly forget about?
