Description bgodusky 2014-01-27 00:02:12 UTC
OK, here we go. I have one folder in KMail that my security system sends emails to including images, sometimes 6 or more images in an email. Is there anyway to default just this one folder to inline view for these emails? I already have HTML as a preference but that does NOT show these images in the inline view. All of these images have the .jpg extension.
If there is no way to do this, then perhaps it should be a feature request to make life easier not only for me but for all others that have a security system that emails captured images on movement like a good security system should.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Wish list feature
2.A feature that the entire community would greatly appreciate
3.
Actual Results:  
Set properties on specified folder to view email attachments inline instead of having to do so on every individual email in the folder.

Expected Results:  
Set folder properties to view all email attachments in a specified folder as inline.

This would be a great feature to add and I suspect many users would use it frequently on specified folders known to be OK to view without worry of a virus or other malady from an unknown user.
For instance some days I receive up to 200 emails from my security system all of which contain image captures of movement. Sure would be nice to be able to just open the email and view all the attachments without having to resort to using the menu item view<attachments<inline.

Why you didn't change it for all messages ?

Need a testcase

Laurent, I don't want it to set like that for all folders since I receive quit 
a few emails with attachments not all of which are trust worthy to view 
inline. As I said in my feature request, the capability to set a single folder 
to do this would be great and would benefit not just myself but many others who 
have security systems that email images to them when an alarm is captured.

A simple way to test this additional feature would be to send yourself emails with images as attachments. Have Kmail redirect those messages to a specific folder as I have done for my security system. Then open those emails to see if your changes open the images inline when opening those emails. I'd be happy to send you some of these emails that my system captures if you wish and that way you could set up a redirection to a specific folder on my email address.

I will not add this feature because it's not easy for user to understand that there is a global settings and a local, and he will not understand that it changes global but it doesn't change local.
For me a global settings is enough.
Comment 5 bgodusky 2014-01-29 00:07:16 UTC
I would disagree, since there is already a properties page for every single folder in kmail where other properties can be set individually!

So your pos of it's not easy for users to know that there is a global and a folder setting is simply ludicrous!

Why not push an email to the entire community and see what everyone else has to say about it especially since each folder already has it's own separate properties page that can be set differently then what is set in the global properties!?

FWIW I agree with the request. Unless this is very difficult to add I do not see why not? Those who are interested in using it will find it useful (I would use it for a business account where I am near 100 of not getting spam/virus/malware), other will likely not even notice it exists.
