I have only tested this with 5.2.3 and not with a more recent version.

Import (gpgsm --import) the attached root ca and afterwards open the message
I'll attach in the next message.

KMail does not show that a signature exists. I don't think that the invalid
signature should be shown prominently as I don't think that any signed mail
should be displayed worse then an unsigned mail (
https://phabricator.kde.org/T3128 ). But some indication should probably be
given and missing it might point to a deeper problem in the parser.
