Attachments Weird In Auto-forward

Postby Ted » Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:01 pm

Attachments in PMs! When you send them to an auto-forwarding account, they behave oddly! The original recipient does NOT receive the attachment, but the forwarded recipient does.


1. Create (or use) two linked accounts: MainAccount and SideAccount. SideAccount will generally forward PMs to MainAccount, which is great.
2. Send a PM with an attachment to SideAccount.


SideAccount will receive a PM with an attachment from Sender. MainAccount will receive a PM with attachment from SideAccount.


SideAccount receives a PM with NO ATTACHMENT from Sender. MainAccount receives a PM with attachment from SideAccount.


Low-medium. This is weird and looks a lot like a bug, but there's a workaround (look at attachments in main account.)

My work around from this is to simply use other options other than the clunky attachments - like google docs with a link to the doc, or a hotlink for an image or an image embed from a web source.

I frankly despise how clunky attachments are and how for images they never display in full

It's also notable that while it *usually* forwards, it's not 100%.

Of four attempts, three forwarded to MainAccount and were not in SideAccount. ONE was available in both accounts.
