Bug Description

When using drag & drop to add attachments to an email, they appear right in the message compose windows, in the top-right corner.

However when sending the email, this error appears for each attachment:

Sending of message failed.
There was an error attaching smb://server/share/directory/document.odt. Please check if you have access to the file.

Workaround: copy the files to the desktop or to any other local directory, drag & drop into compose window, send.

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu and Thunderbird since that time.

Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) reached end-of-life on April 28, 2017.

Do you still see a problem related to the one that you reported using currently supported versions of Thunderbird and Ubuntu? Please let us know if you do otherwise this report can be left to expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
