    I have a very annoying problem with mail.app. When I receive emails with LaTex file attachments, mail.app does not download the attachment but it just display the code of the file so I have to copy all the code to a new latex file. This process is very inconvenient. Does anybody know how to fix this problem ? Please help me, I love apple mail and don't want to switch to Thunderbird just because of this problem :(
    Thank in advance & sorry for my bad english

    Can you post the raw source from your email?

    No problems with .tex files here. See screenshot attachment below.

    In any case, you should be able to click the 'Save' button on the attachment line.

    My problem is that mail.app doesn't even display the save button :(, it automatically displays the LaTex code and treats my mail as there's no attachment

    How are you 'attaching' the .tex file to the email?
