Description ingot 2014-08-22 22:58:32 UTC
When I drag a message in KMail to a "Plasmoid" folder then this link does not open the respective message window.

More generally speaking: drag and drop for email messages works, but the file with the link created does not lead  to the right action.

If I am doing something wrong please let me know. Maybe my system needs some configuration? Otherwise I would expect that both from my desktop from a Plasmoid folder I could start that link as well as from a file explorer like Dolphin. 

It should be also possible to launch such an aconadi - link from a HTML document like in LibreOffice.

Please do not hesitate to ask me, if it is not clear enough what I mean.

Thank you very much for helping!
