KMail does not automatically decrypt multipart/encrypted messages
Last modified: 2007-12-12 14:57:48 EST
Description of problem:
KMail 1.9.6 (kdepim-3.5.7-10.svn20070926.ent.fc7) does not automatically decrypt
multipart/encrypted GPG messages any more. It worked until today's update.
If the mime type is multipart/mixed, then the KMail behaves correctly, asks for
password and decrypts the message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new message and set the encoding type to OpenPGP/MIME.
2. Choose "Send later"
3. Look at the message in your outgoing folder
I'm shown a message that this message is encrypted and no decription is
possible. I can click on "Decrypt Message" in which case I'm asked for password
and the message is being decrypted and shown.
KMail should ask for password atomatically, no matter what kind of envelope is
chosen for the message.
I'm using gpg-agent and pinentry-qt for password provision to GPG.
This one would be a good one to report upstream to
to get upstream-dev attention.
I've now reported this bug on KDE's bug tracking system:
Can you try out this test build:
kdepim-3.5.8-10.svn20071129.ent.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kdepim'
Seems to be all right in KMail 1.9.6 enterprise 0.20071012.724442 (KDE
3.5.8-7.fc7). I suppose I missed the right checkbox in KMail's config - or it
was not there previously.
kdepim-3.5.8-10.svn20071129.ent.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
