Description Daniel Aleksandersen 2007-07-02 21:26:18 UTC
Version:           1.9.6 (using KDE 3.5.6, Kubuntu (feisty) 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu14)
Compiler:          Target: x86_64-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.20-15-generic

Hi,

Try opening the following URI. KMail will strip away the escaped "+" symbol and replace it with " " (space).

mailto:address%2Btag%40provider.tld (plain text: address+tag@provider.tld)

Which is a bug. Plus is indeed a supported character in email addresses.

Works fine for me (with the mail bugzilla generated from your report). Please 
try the lastest version of KMail (1.9.7) and see if that fixes the problem.

I have updated KMail to version 1.9.7. The problem still occurs. Plus is being replaced by space.mailto:address%2Btag%40provider.tld

I open mailto URIs from Opera 9.21 with the following arguments (as provided by Opera Software ASA's help section):

kmail [%t] [-cc %c] [-subject %s] [-body %b]

However opening it from KDE's run dialog TVICE fixes the problem. The first time it does not open correctly. Secon time I try from the run dialog it works. I run the following cmomand: mailto:address%2Btag%40provider.tld
