           Summary: Crash on deleting attachments

          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: crash
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general

unfortunately I cannot give you a good bt because I am on a mixed system of

But let me explain my problem. In the KDE 4 version of KMail, deleting
attachments sometimes failed. I just right-clicked, selected "Delete
Attachment" from the context menu and nothing happened. To make it work again,
I had to first select another email in the message list and then select the
original email again. Then I could resume deleting attachments. Sometimes I had
to delete one at a time and do the selection game in between, sometimes I was
able to delete 2 to 5 attachments before it was stuck again but that's how it
was in KDE 4 for me.

Now I installed the KF5 version of KMail (5.2.1) and the behaviour changed a
bit. I can delete way more attachments before the deletion process gets stuck
and I have to select and re-select as described above. But now, KMail crashes
sometimes when deleting an attachment.

The getting stuck and sometimes crash behaviour seems to get worse the more
attachments I delete. And once I wait for 5 minutes, I can continue without
problems ... until it gets worse again.

My Mail Server is posteo.de (in case that's helping) and I am connected via
