Description Silas De Munck 2005-05-31 23:22:02 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.4.1)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

I would like to have a quote indicator that's replaced by a vertical color line, like in Thunderbird.

See here for an example: http://users.skynet.be/bk235068/mailmarks.png

This feature request of KMail from KDE 3.4.1 was created 7 years ago. And now we have a new KDE 4.8.2, but nothing has been done yet. =( I wrote about it on the KDE forum: http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=215&t=99069, but nobody helped me. I wrote on kdepim-users@kde.org maillist, but I was ignored.
Guys, it is really big problem to read html mails with a lot of quotations. Could anybody from developer team pay attention to this request?
Faithfully yours,  Evgeny.

Thank you for your feature request. Kmail1 is currently unmaintained so we are closing all wishes. Please feel free to reopen a feature request for Kmail2 if it has not already been implemented.
Thank you for your understanding.

Unfortunately, I can't confirm that this issue has been resolved.
I've just checked. Yes, htlm messages with html quotes are displayed correctly (with color lines), but when I try to answer on this message all these color quotes disappear because editor doesn't support this functionality. It just leaves indents instead of quotes.

I can provide a screenshots if it necessary.
