Dear Adobe team,

the web forum message composer lets you attach files, saying "All file types are allowed except: .doc, .bin, .dms, .lha, .lzh, .exe, .class, .so, .dll"

But when trying to upload a .psd or .icc file, I got the error message The content type of this attachment is not allowed.  ....    I can counter this by renaming the files to .txt as a workaround, or zip them, but maybe you can fix the error.

Thanks,
Chris

While you're waiting for a fix (good luck) - rumour has it you can attach just about anything via the camera icon. You'll see a broken image icon in the message, but files are clickable and downloadable. I'm not entirely sure this is a good thing

LOL, thanks ...

we.., I've just tried, it doesn't work for me ... I renamed a .txt file to jpeg and uploaded it with the camera (as the camera would refuse a .txt file), but then the content of the text file is displayed, rather than a downloadable file ...

but then the content of the text file is displayed, rather than a downloadable file .

well, yea. because text is a mime type your browser understands and it will render it if it can (or some browsers will ask to display or download). try it with a non-native type like psd...

right click... save link as: change name to remove the .jpg extention and open er up and you get a java source file:

/**
  * The HelloWorldApp class implements an application that
  * simply prints "Hello World!" to standard output.
  */
class HelloWorldApp {
     public static void main(String[] args) {
         System.out.println("Hello World!"); // Display the string.
     }
}

Ok, thanks a lot Dave ...

it's funny, that it works that way ...

but as I said in my OP, if I rename my file and give it a false extension, I can attach it anyway.
