New submission from Thomas Arendsen Hein <thomas at intevation.de>:

If the Content-Type header of the kolab.xml attachment has an upper case type,
e.g. APPLICATION/x-vnd.kolab.contact (sample attached), kontact does no longer
recognize it.

Verified with Kontact Version 1.2.9 (enterprise35 20080704.827950) and with an
older version (1.2.4 of a different user).

RFC3141 states:

  Content-Type := type "/" subtype *[";" parameter] 

  The type, subtype, and parameter names are not case sensitive.

This is not a theoretical problem, but imap_mail_compose produces such MIME
headers (and Toltec accepts them fine).
