Description Jean-Fabrice LEGRAND 2003-05-01 22:09:39 UTC
Version:           1.5.1 (using KDE KDE 3.1.1)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:          Linux

Sometimes a geek needs to send a lot of pictures to people who don't use Kmail.

Some mail software are not able to display the pictures directly in the body part of the message. A nice geek needs to do a inline attachement. He has to open the Properties dialog of each attachment (right click on attachment) and enable "Suggest automatic display".

A nice geek wastes hours and needs to change his mouse more often than a bad geek.(Life is hard)

It's could be great if a nice geek could enable the "suggest automatic display" for all the attachements in one pass.

Maybe adding this option in the "attach file" dialog could make the world better.

Comment 1 Jean-Fabrice LEGRAND 2004-05-11 19:24:30 UTC
kde 3.2.2
Kmail 1.6.2

Nothing had changed
It's not possible to "suggest automatic display" for all the attachements in one shot.

Hope it will be in kmail 2.0.0 :P

Comment 2 tink 2006-02-11 22:52:25 UTC
I'm completely with him on that one.  As far as I'm concerned it's a mime-type 
issue of the entire message, and not a property of the individual attachement.

Hence a request to add a tick-box for "suggest automatic display" to the 
composers dialog-box rather than in a properties pop-up per attachment.

Comment 3 Mike Frysinger 2006-02-14 01:55:28 UTC
well, i think the attach file dialog is just a generic file browser isnt it ?  if there were a checkbox in the attachment list like there is for compress/sign/etc..., that'd work just fine for me ...
Comment 4 Myriam Schweingruber 2012-08-18 08:14:11 UTC
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.

this part of kmail hasn't changed, but i don't have access to modifying the bug to re-open and move to new kmail2 product
Comment 6 Luigi Toscano 2012-08-19 01:03:04 UTC
Instead of creating a new feature request, please confirm here if the wishlist is still valid for kmail2.

i think adding an additional column for inlining the document in the attachment view part below of the kmcomposewin can ease the process. what say? I think this would involve changing attachmentmodel.h and attachment.cpp to incorporate an extra column for selecting the inline method. I guess this should solve the problem?
Comment 8 Laurent Montel 2013-03-18 06:43:55 UTC
Yes me too.
Will implement it soon.
