I download mail form Gmail accounts locally via POP3 + fetchmail, but I
thought IMAP only downloaded the header by default.

Anyway, did you try 'v' for view-attachments?

I posted a mutt question here and got a good answer.

Also, I was kindly reminded of mutt-users@mutt.org , which is a great list.

Mutt-users really know their stuff and respond quickly because they don't
get enough traffic to keep them busy.

Be kind to mutt-users. Send them posts.

Once you click to open the e-mail in pager, it downloads the complete
message (haeder, body), attachments included :-(

> Anyway, did you try 'v' for view-attachments?

Yes, that works as expected, I can see the attahched files by pressing
"v".

But what I need is to prevent those big files from being downloaded
unless I really want to proceed.

I thought someone reading this list could have some skills with Mutt, so
I first asked here O:-)

Okay, okay...

This bug is ancient but sounds like what you are reporting:

http://dev.mutt.org/trac/ticket/663

OMG!

A nine years bug and still open <|:-)

Thanks much for the advice. That is exactly what I wanted to achieve, but
if the bug is really unresolved... mmm, I'm stuck.

I also posted the question to "mutt-users" mailing list but still no
reply.

Or mutt-dev.. asking for a status.. :-)

I'm not familiar with their bug tracking system, but I'm surprised this
hasn't been take care of some way or other.

Sounds like a legitimate request in the context of IMAP.

I'm pretty sure it has, (been taken care of) as my mutt (Sid) only
downloads the headers on IMAP and downloads the message only when I
open it.

What does it do about attachements, though? The OP wants to download the
body, but not any attachments until he chooses to.

Cheers,

As usual, this being a 1.3.x release, I haven't even compiled this
kernel yet. So if it works, you should be doubly impressed.

<sigh> Damn, going from memory isn't the best is it? I forgot
completely about the attachment aspect. My bad. Excuse the noise,
please.
