Resolution: Affected version:


I have our redmine setup to receive emails to create issues using the "Fetching emails from an IMAP server" instructions at

I can successfully attach files to these emails and see them show up, except for emails attached to these files.

I am attaching outlook msg files to a new outlook email message, and sending that to the redmine account.

Should I expect to be able to do this?

Of course, the workaround is to manually attach the email after the issue is created.
