Description Bodo Eggert 2002-05-08 09:50:48 UTC
(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

Package:           knode
Version:           KDE 3.0.0 
Severity:          wishlist
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
Compiler:          Not Specified
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified

gnus (emacs) will generate multipart/mixed messages if the original encloding and the response have different charsets.
An example is Message-ID: <873cx49qle.fsf@andreas.org>.

By now they are decoded as attachements. This is ok for reading but replying will not work.

As a workaround I recommend converting it to unicode instead a good place for the function call is propably just after handling the uuencoded. parts.

There should be an option to specify the newsreaders for which the recoding is done and some X-Headers should optionally be inserted.

Knode.0.6.1 KDE.2.2.2I see the same Behaviour:The second Multipart Text is shown as Attachment:Name 		MIME-Typ 	BeschreibungUnbenannt	text/plainA practical "Workaround" for Users is:Setting: Show AttachmentsFor Reply and Quote: Mark the Message Text and the Text-Attachment, then press: REPLY
