Attachments not showing up in the discussion panel


In the discussion panel, previous emails do not contain any attachments or only some of them. When searched for the original email, attachments show up.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Open any discussion with several emails that had attachments.
  2. Open a previous email
  3. Check for attachments - they are either missing or only a part of them are present

Expected Behavior

The attached files to a previous email are either missing or not all are shown.


  • OS and Version: Manjaro Linux (also verified on Windows 10)
  • Mailspring Version: 1.7.4-d54ff730

Additional Context

If the original email is opened then the attachments show up.

Hey! Thanks for reporting this, it definitely sounds like there could be a bug here.

Could you clarify how you’re viewing the discussion though? Are you expanding the previous emails in the conversation by clicking on the folding UI that looks like this:

Or by expanding the quoted text within a particular message using these three dots?

I am expanding the previous mails by clicking on the folding UI (the first image you showed). The emails show the “attachments” icon on the right but when selecting the email no attachments show up.
I have to say that lately I’m experiencing this issue not as frequently as before, approximately one in 5-7 emails will show up without their attachments.
Let me know if you need any additional information.
