We have an application that accesses an Gmail account (IMAP) using Java Mail API. Works fine for all types of emails except for a message that contains an .eml file as attachment and the message is sent using Thunderbird.

Here is the exception stack trace when trying to retrieve that message .

Caused by: com.google.code.javax.mail.MessagingException: Unable to load BODYSTRUCTURE
at com.google.code.com.sun.mail.imap.IMAPMessage.load BODYSTRUCTURE(IMAPMessage.java:1377)
at com.google.code.com.sun.mail.imap.IMAPMessage.getC ontentType(IMAPMessage.java:492)


Please advise. Thanks
