Description Stevan White 2003-04-24 06:48:59 UTC
Version:           1.5 (using KDE KDE 3.1)
Installed from:    Mandrake RPMs

Please enable the viewing of "file://" URL's in messages.

I have an application for this feature.  There are probably others.
See http://eudora2unix.sourceforge.net/details.html, under "Attachments".

Some people have raised questions about security of such a feature, but
it escapes me how launching a designated viewer from Kmail can be any
more dangerous than launching it from, say, Konqueror.  Also, Pine has 
this feature already.
