Starting recently (last Friday), when I send email messages with cc: to myself, my received copy does not display the attachments. They are there, I can see them when Ilook in the message source.

I noticed this morning that if I stop signing my outgoing email, then they start displaying again.

Is this a known problem, and/or is there a fix?

    Thanks, appears to work.

    Please let me know when there is a regular release that includes this fix. I just got notice of a new release, but assume I shouldn’t install that yet.

    If you install the latest nightly you should not see the update to 2018.5, which does not yet include this fix. You can simply run the nightly and wait for the next stable release.
