[Kolab-devel] [issue4706] kmail attachment not visible for other programs (wrong mime-type)

I've installed kde-pim enterprise35 on a fresh Kubuntu Lucid install. Packages
are from http://files.kolab.org/apt/ubuntu
Kmail version for Lucid is 20100903.117128

Attachments from Kmail are not visibles for other mails readers - a least the
most used: Outlook-express and Thunderbird. Looks like it is a mime-type
problem: attachment type is set on Multipart/Alternative, while in older and
newer versions it is Multipart/Mixed. I've changing the mime-type in a saved
message, and it works: attachments are visibles.

Kmail enterprise35 version in Kolab's Lenny repository is more recent
(20101112.1196042) and not affected by the bug.
