    Hi!

    I have updated to Lion and I have a problem with Mail (which actually also sporadically happened in Snow Leopard).... often when an email contains an attachment is visualized like <see image below>.

    I fixed it by deleting the messages in Library/Mail/IMAP.../folder_where_message_is and restarting Mail.

    Since it happens quite often now, does anyone know how to fix this permanently?

    Thanks!

    Try Mailbox menu and then Rebuild.

    Don't think there's a permanent fix....just looks like poor decoding of MIME content.

    Unfortunately now instead I get this... emails with no sender/subject... an which should carry an attachment but they don't...

    I have to login to Gmail to download the attachment...
    Any idea?
