I sent an email with a word document attached. email2trac successfully created the ticket and the attachment. But from trac I am not able to open the attachment as a word document. It tries to open it as "encoded text".

I have just tried to send an email with a word attachment and open it in trac without any problems. Trac can not generate a preview you have to download the file:

Ticket #1: 8-Maart-2007.doc
File 8-Maart-2007.doc, 111.5 kB (added by Bas van der Vlies, 15 seconds ago)

Added by email2trac
HTML preview not available. To view the file, download the file. 

Maybe yoo have to configure the mime-types for your browser.

Thanks for the response. I think I found the problem. First of all I missed a very important detail (so sorry about that): I am using email2Trac scrip on a windows 2003 server. Also Trac is running on that server as well. A scheduled batch periodically reads email from the pop server and runs them throug Email2Trac script. There were 2 problems. I patched the script for those.

  • Unicode filenames can't be processed. I encoded them to utf-8 that fixed.
  • util.create_unique_file was creating text files on NTFS. I used open (...,'wb') and open(...,'rb'). That is also fixes the problem.

Anything else works fine on Windows platform. FYI

Regards
