Description sean 2002-10-09 16:25:19 UTC
Version:           1.4.7 (using KDE 3.0.8 (KDE 3.1 beta2))
Installed from:    Gentoo
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.19-xfs-r1

I found what I believe is inconsistent behavior. When viewing mail, a base64 encoded html attachment is rendered below the message body (first of the multiparts is a quoted-printable block which is rendered first). Incidentally, this breaks rendering because there are two <html>..</html> blocks, the second block is displayed as unparsed text. But that's not the bug I'm reporting. 

When a filter is created to act on text contained in this "message body" the filter fails, because I presume that the filter is applied only to the undecoded text? I think that, because I am presented with decoded text in the message body window that I should be able to filter on this text too.

I'll attach the specific message that caused this problem. It looks like a klez email, so in response I wanted to add a filter to move any message containing ".vbs"  to my dumpster folder. The ".vbs" in this message is located in the third decoded attachment, but kmail isn't finding it.

I've been looking regularly for messages containing a string, and could NOT find them because of this <<bug>>... Please help by changing this behaviour : check the WHOLE message, not only a part of it. Thanks.

Thank you for your feature request. Kmail1 is currently unmaintained so we are closing all wishes. Please feel free to reopen a feature request for Kmail2 if it has not already been implemented.
Thank you for your understanding.

Instead of creating a new feature request, please confirm here if the wishlist is still valid for kmail2.
