Error message

Please have a look at the attached screenshot - the mail contains 3 attachments, but when I try to save them with 'save all attachments', an error message pops up that no attachments are found.

Can we have a test case ?
Comment 2 Axel Braun 2017-06-14 13:04:50 UTC
I will send you a PM
Comment 3 Axel Braun 2022-02-22 16:07:15 UTC
Just noticed this is still an issue in KMail 5.19.2
Mail was sent from
X-Mailer: Apple Mail (2.3654.60.0.2.21)

KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.1
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.90.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2

I don't think this is a bug.

If you look closely, the listed attachments have a background color. But they don't always have that. I don't know what this signifies, perhaps someone from the KDE/KMail team can clarify? I suspect it has something to do with spam/security checks.

Anyway, 'Save Attachments' will only see the attachments that don't have a background color. I will try to attach a screenshot where you can see the difference. There are 6 attachments in this email, five of them PNG images, they have a background color (purple in my case). One is a PDF without a background. When I right click 'Save Attachments' it only saves the PDF.

I have another email containing multiple XLSX files. All of them have a background color. When I click 'Save Attachments', I get the message 'Found no attachments to save'.

So I think this works as intended (in the original screenshots the attachments also have backgrounds), only it's not clear to the user why no attachments are found.

Not sure if I understand 'background color'. You mean the way it is presented in KMail? 
I have just received a bunch of mails again, no text, just pictures, and it does not find a single attachment to save!
