Bug#505153: kmail: corrupts single attachment of multipart emails generated by MS Outlook or Outlook Express

Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.5.9-5
Severity: important

Sometimes if I fetch an email with a single file attached kmail corrupts this attachment. I'm using pop3 and could observe this error with attached files of original sizes of 4 MB as well as file sizes of around 12 MB.

The result is that kmail shows the email with two attachments that have the same name but different file sizes. Usually one is very small (a few kB) and the other is very much bigger (a little bit smaller than the original file).

Both attached files are broken and unusable.

In the source of two of the emails I found that the emails are multipart-mails and were created by "Microsoft Outlook Express" respectively "Microsoft Office Outlook 11".

I believe that is has something to do with wrong (?) interpretation of multipart messages by kmail. I found a similar bug in kde-bugzilla (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143237) that is pending for around two years now.

If two files are attached to the mail this problem seems not to occur. If I download the email via a web-interface directly from the server this problem does not occur either.
