You can't subscribe to that, probably you meant firstname.lastname@example.org ?
I just tried this too with my gmail address in Modest on 4.2008.23-14 and I
haven't had any problems.
So this happens to all messages from maemo-developers mailing list to you? Does
this also happen with other emails?
Also, starting from the commandline ('modest showui') might give some valuable
output - please post it here.
In general, please provide a step-by-step how-to.

How really message look in web browser
My version also is 4.2008.23-14.
I'm subscribed on https://lists.maemo.org/mailman/listinfo/maemo-developers
Subscribed email is email@example.com on Gmail server.
Modest connect to gmail by IMAP.
Command line run 'modest showui' don't get any output.
A attached screenshot's from my tablet for demo of bug.
Again: Please provide a step by step explanation.
"Subsribe and recieve letters from firstname.lastname@example.org via
imap" is not sufficient to reproduce this.
If you want to reproduce this bug - is very simple.
1. Create if you don't have gmail account. I can to send invite if you need.
2. Subscribe on https://lists.maemo.org/mailman/listinfo/maemo-developers to
"maemo-developers Digest" with plain-text option for this gmail email.
3. On modest NIT to create GMAIL IMAP account for this email.
After them we will be on receive one bug letters per day (or more).
I think that this modest bug in next: It can't receive letters with attachments
as another letters in plain text.
I still could not reproduce this.
Can you please forward the offending message to my gmail imap account? My
address is andre /dot/ klapper \at/ gmail \dot\ commm
(yes, i hate getting even more spam. ;-)
I made redirect to your address required letters.
Created an attachment (id=876) [details]
Example message triggering the bug
I could reproduce this several times with any the maemo-developers digest
emails on Modest, using my GMail IMAP account.
Attaching such an offending email (.tar.gz to avoid spam bots harvesting the
addresses) which was saved on my desktop computer where it is displayed
correctly (mail application on desktop: Evolution 184.108.40.206).
Thx for the report!. The problem is that we're not detecting the email body
correctly in this case. We're investigating why. Actually I fixed a small issue
and I can see part one of the text mime parts that the message includes, but I
wont commit it until I improve a little bit the body detection for these cases.

Glazov, can you please revert that now? :-)

Sergio said that there are currently no plans to fix this because there hasn't
been time for that. Hence still valid in Fremantle.
"If you have several plain text mime parts there is no easy way to know which
one is the important part. So the solution would be to show them all."

Ideally the user should be able to see a list of the message's MIME parts and
navigate between them, and in the case of message/rfc822 parts even perform
message operations like reply, forward etc on those parts. See claws-mail and
mutt (view-attachments, bound to 'v' by default) for decent multipart

Verification highly welcome!
Quoting from the internal ticket:
* Changed the body detection. Now we only use the html/text preference when
we find a body in a multipart/alternative. If not, we show as body the first
text/ part in the message.
* Now we show the messages in a multipart/digest, if the message has one
attached. Then we can show properly all the messages in the digest.
* The other possible bodies we find in the message are shown as attachments.
Using tinymail revision 3924 also properly sorts the mimeparts.
Verified, it works very nicely now :-)
Fix should be included in Fremantle SDK beta 2 hence updating Target Milestone.
If you are the reporter of this bug: Feel free to verify the fix if possible.
