Instead, and this is kde-4.5.3, pclos, it claims in the little edge message
to the left of the message view window, that it is a "no html message",
when the message structure at the bottom of the message view window does
show an html component, which if clicked on shows it properly I believe. I
would have to call this a bug, but enabling the message structure window
does enable the viewing of the whole thing once the html is clicked on in
the message structure window. But I cannot get enough of it onscreen at
once to be able to determine if the nesting is proper. Typically one of the
"offenders" is a megabyte or more.
Lets hope 4.5.4 handles this better. ;-)
Thank you Boyd, for the prompt response.
I have included one of the senders of such in my replies To: list. From
this it isn't possible to point a finger at the errant program other than to
say there seems to be a minor incompatibility between them.
