Didn't Mahogany just save it with the name of (non existing) folder?

No.  But even if it had done that I would think it a bug:
is not the proper behavior to warn that the path is bad?
Anyway, I just tested this again and the file cannot be
found under the name I gave it nor renamed to math the
(non-existant) directory name I used anywhere on my hard
drive.

Cheers,
Alan

In fact I've just tried it and I can't reproduce it: I right clicked on an
attachment in a message, chose "Save" and entered "c:\foo\bar" in the file
dialog which popped up. And got an error saying that the system can't find
the file specified...

What should I do exactly to trigger this bug?

Thanks,
VZ

You are following the same procedure I did.
OK, I am on another computer today.
It has Mahogany 0.66 (18 months old) and Windows XP.
I get a "cannot save file" warning.
The setup where I had the problem was:
the most recent snapshot on Win 2000.

So ...

It looks like I should test this again once you make a new
Windows binary.

Cheers,
Alan

### copy without formatting

I have Mahogany set up to display my email with the fonts
and colors I prefer.  Quite nice.

BUT

When I copy text from an email, I really want just the text,
without *any* formatting.  Indeed, I cannot recall a single
time when I've wanted to copy the formatting.

What I've been having to do is copy from Mahogany into my
text editor and then into the target application.  Can
I somehow tell Mahogany to ignore the formatting when I copy
text?

If not, can this please be an enhancement request?

Cheers,
Alan Isaac
