  No you didn't!

  No it hasn't![*]

  Thunderbird does not automatically bzip attachments, and even if it did, it
wouldn't have removed the ".srv" from the filename.  It does, however, have an
option under "View->Display Attachements Inline" that displays plain-text
attachments "en clair".

  What you are doing wrong is looking at your later post:

rather than the one CGF's reply:

was actually addressing:

Message-ID: <49FE746E.2080409@bonhard.uklinux.net>

which, seeing as it happened later in time, CGF's post could not reasonably
have been expected to be responding to!

 PROTIP:  "View->Sort by->Threaded" will help avoid this problem in future!
