message in question
Description of problem:
Evolution when it gets to the attached message just stops on the attached message, it gets to 100%CPU on one CPU (fortunately, I have more of them) and that's it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
this message has never been succesfully parsed even though I have killed and restarted evolution couple of times (including removing whole cache of the folder where the message is located ... it's on IMAP, against Zarafa server).
Steps to Reproduce:
1.see attached evidence
message should be pretty quickly parsed and I go on with my life.

Thanks for a bug report. I can reproduce it with your message too.
I filled this upstream  for a better reference, and took your message, stripped from it private information, and attached it there for testing too.
Fixed within upstream bug for 3.6.2. I thought it's because multipart/mixed, but it turned out as a problem with prefer-plain plugin, which broke the parts list (probably because text/plain part was after text/html, while it should be the fist part).
