[rt-users] Problem with attachments

It dawned on me that maybe the problem was only with the resolution message (which is of type comment), so I tried with a simple reply with an attachment, and it worked.

Was there a change in the way RT 4.2.9 handles comments? We had no problem previously sending out an email with attachment on resolution of the ticket. We upgraded from RT 4.2.3 IIRC.

Good morning.

I have fighting with this problem two days, but I still have no clue.

The problem is this: suddenly RT will not send attachments.

Unfortunately we send attachments very rarely, so I cannot exactly say when this behaviour started. It could be that it started from the day I upgraded our installation from 4.2.3 to 4.2.9 (in december), or later when I added/upgraded some extensions (RT-Extension-Announce-1.00, rt-extension-customfieldsonupdate, RT-Extension-SpawnLinkedTicketInQueue-1.01).

I tried everything I could to debug the problem. I am sure sendmail is working well, because I can send mails with attachments using the simple "mail" interface from the same server where RT resides.

I just finished examining RT's log (in debug mode), regarding a test ticket I created and then resolved adding an attachment. There is no error at all in the log, let  alone a warning message that says

[warning]: Couldn't load object RT::Transaction #0 (/opt/rt4/sbin/../lib/RT/Interface/Web.pm:3026)

but I don't think this is a real problem, since we had have this type of message for a long time with no apparent symptoms (please reply if I'm wrong).

I can easily see that RT is skipping the attachment somehow. Here is an old header from a mail of ticket that contained an attachment:

Here is the header from the mail of the test ticket I just created:

We have not changed the resolution template recently (I mean in the last 2 years). The template starts with:

Content-Type: text/html
Subject: {$Ticket->Subject}
RT-Attach-Message: yes


It is as if the RT-Attach-Message special header didn't work anymore, or if it suddenly doesn't consider the attachment in the last transaction.

I am out of ideas, could somebody try to help me?

Thank you in advance.
