Vonage I also have been seeing this problem with the missing .wav files in Apple Mail,

I also have been seeing this problem with the missing .wav files in Apple Mail, but I am starting to think the problem is with how Vonage is formatting the emails.

I went back and looked at the raw source for an older email where the .wav attachment does appear and the raw source for a newer email message that does not display the .wav attachment.

What I discovered is that the Content-type fields are different.

The content-type should be multipart/mixed , but in the broken file it reads multipart/related .

Also there is an additional text block in the broken file that reads...

This is a multi-part message in MIME format
Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
MIME-Version: 1.0

This entire block of text is missing from the email file that correctly displays the attachment.

Also note that the body of the broken message seems to contain both these boundary text strings, while the file that works only contains the boundary string denoted in the header "Content-type" field.

Date: Oct 26 2008 05:45:54 PM
From: 15084781786
To : me (vonage number)
Content-Type: audio/x-wav
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="voice-message.wav"

So apparently, something seems to have changed in the way the voicemail emails with attachments are being sent by Vonage. not only is the Content-type different, but there are now two boundary test strings when before there was just the one.

Take a look for yourself and see if you identify the same issue.

I'm using Leopard 10.5.5 using Apple Mail 3.5.

You'll find your email files are stored as .emlx files. Look in ~/Library/Mail, then find the folder that corresponds with your email account. The .emlx files will be in the INBOX.mbox/Messages folder (assuming you haven't moved them).

To locate the file I wanted I used Quick Look (spacebar) and scrolled through the files quickly using the up and down arrow keys. Once I found the email I wanted to examine, I right clicked it (Command-Click) and chose Open With > Other... and selected TexEdit.

Compare the source of a file that displays the attachment with one that doesn't display the attachment.

I honestly don't think Apple Mail is guilty here since the headers were munged up when I viewed them using my ISP's (Verizon) webmail so Apple Mail can't be at fault, though some might argue that it could handle this formatting better. I haven't yet investigated how other email clients handle the new format.

Oh, and I edited the malformed .emlx file, saved it and then restarted Apple Mail. The once broken message is now displaying the .wav attachment after editing and "repairing" the .emlx file.
