New submission from Torsten Irländer <torsten.irlaender at intevation.de>:

There is an option to attach file to a tasks or an event. The behavior how this           
is done in Kontact differs to Outlook, which leads to the fact that both           
clients can not see the attachements.           
Outlook really attaches the file to the event or task mail, and syncs it up to          
the server. So this file is potentially available for other users.          
Kontact in contrast keeps the "attached" file locally on the filesystem and         
adds a link pointing to the file:          
I think Outlook's approach is much better here as it make attachments usable in    
a evironment with shared folders where various people have access to the    
I think Kontact should be adopted to Outlooks behavior here, or make it    
configurable at least.
