Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.3.2-3
Severity: minor

I just stumbled over it by debugging a problem with odd looking addresses and found out they were valid.

kmail should support addresses of the form     joe\ doe@example.com
which include a whitespace in the localpart.

kmail fails.

If you use the other way to quote them:   "joe doe"@example.com kmail is successfull.

It is very unlikely somebody uses such addresses, but you never know :-)

Okay. Closing this message then. Thanks Tom.
