Description Till Schäfer 2016-05-13 14:24:50 UTC
The new contact editor in Kontact 16.04 is missing the per contact settings for html messages. 
* display message in html 
* show embedded content
Previously, I was able to set my preference on a per contact basis. This is an important setting. So please re-add it.

Reproducible: Always

I see a few options here to place the settings: 

1. Rename the tab "crypto settings" to security and add the options here. This would also align with the global settings structure. One needs to rename the groups labels from "Allowed Protocols" to "Allowed Crypto Protocols" and "Message Preference" to "Crypto Message Preference" in this case.
2. Add the Settings to the Contact tab.

3. Add another tab "message display" or "appearance"

=> what do you think? I would prefer option 1.

In the meanwhile the options returned in the contact tab of the contact editor (I have checked here with 5.6.3 and 5.7.0)
