           Summary: "View Source" displays mail body parts like mail header
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: jo feuersee de

Version:            (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

If the mail body (text/plain) or parts of a multipart mail consists of lines with header-like formatted content, eg.

Note: foo bar

the "Note:" part is displayed like email headers (bold) when using the "View Source" option.

Most likely, this behavior is because in case of mime/multipart mails, this is an easy way to highlight Content-Type related headers of all mime parts.
Unfortunately, mail bodys consisting of phrases like
CEO: Wilbert E. Smith
and the like are rather common.
