Yes, please forward this spam email as attachment. If there is a
problem with Fancy Plugin, it will be forwarded to Bugzilla. I guess,
since Fancy Plugin is using WebKit (I assume WebKitGTK+), you can test
the HTML attachment, of the spam email in question, with a WebKit-based
web browser and observe if problem persist with it.

Open a WebKit-based web browser and drag 'n' drop the HTML attachment
icon into it.

Thank you, Colin.

If I know I have a solution, I, usually, would not hesitate to post it,
but since the answer, in this case, is "matter is irrelevant" (thus
original post is redundant), which is discouraging somewhat, I figured
it would be best to be posted by a member of The Claws Mail Team.
