Description Bernd Oliver Sünderhauf 2012-11-29 01:20:57 UTC
Some programs (such as Lotus Notes) tend to attach files even of well-known MIME types as "application/octet-stream".
kmail obviously manages to determine the MIME type of such a file by its extension: it correctly associates the application for opening the file, and when saving to the filesystem it changes the MIME type to "application/pdf", "application/msword" or whatever.
So it would be really nice and should be no problem to display the specific icon instead of just some default "?" icon.

Reproducible: Always

I need to have a mail example to test it.
Comment 2 Jonathan Marten 2012-12-02 16:23:56 UTC
Is this the same as ancient bug 35836?
Test email message attached there.
