EML files: Body is empty
Open, LowPublic


In the forum we have a case where someone tells about a user who opened EML files. When GpgOL was enabled the body of that emails were empty.

I was able to reproduce this:

  1. Created a draft for an email in Thunderbird
  2. Saved that draft into an EML file
  3. Opened that file in Outlook


  • Gpg4win 4.1.0
  • Outlook 2301 (Build 16026.20146)

Hier is a log file from GpgOL (+Code verfolgung)

There is the output

Failed to get body ASCII stream

but I'm not sure if that is the cause for the missing body.

Hint: When the user disabled GpgOL -> Automation -> Automatically secure messages in the configuration of GpgOL he could see the email body again.
