           Summary: Editing of received emails not possible
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.6
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: knizek volny cz

Version:           1.9.6 (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

In order to easy later searching of the emails and orientation within them, it would be good if one can edit any email message in Kmail. (Both sent mails or received mails.)

I am aware that this could potentionally be a problem with signed or encrypted messages, however, it could be solved by creating a duplicate of the message for the purpose of another input.

I like to add my own comments to received emails or to edit Subject field to better express the contents (I really cannot force the other party to use my style of thinking...). I dislike forwarding the message to myself or creating a draft to arrange for this - since I would loose the possibily to search by the original sender or recepient.
