           Summary: Cannot handle plus symbols in mailto URI links
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.6
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: addressbook
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: aleksandersen+bugs runbox com

Version:           1.9.6 (using KDE 3.5.6, Kubuntu (feisty) 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu14)
Compiler:          Target: x86_64-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.20-15-generic


Try opening the following URI. KMail will strip away the escaped "+" symbol and replace it with " " (space).

mailto:address%2Btag%40provider.tld (plain text: address+tag provider tld)

Which is a bug. Plus is indeed a supported character in email addresses.
