            Bug ID: 407871
           Summary: KMail-created ToDo's open up as text instead of mail
           Product: kdepim
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: vaclav.masin at atlas.cz
  Target Milestone: ---

Creating a ToDo from KMail based on an email message stores the attached
message (seemingly) as a text file. Trying to open up the attached file in
KOrganizer results in opening it in KWrite instead of in KMail. The content
itself, however, is sound. If I save the attached file ("Save As...") and then
open it up in KMail manually (File -> Open), it does display the message
properly (as email message).

1. In KMail, right click in message list on a message (or in message view
pane), select "Create ToDo", click "Save" button to store it in a calendar of
2. In KOrganizer, select "View" -> "ToDo List" in the menu, find the above
created ToDo, double click it, switch to the "Attachments" tab, double click
the attached file.

Attached file opens up in KWrite (as text).

Attached file opens up in KMail (as email message).

Linux: LFS-8.4 (Linux From Scratch)
KDE Plasma Version: 5.15.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.58
Qt Version: 5.12.3
KMail version: 5.11.1
KOrganizer version: 5.11.1

I tried first asking in the forums
(https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=215&t=159990) but to no avail. The
feature in question has always worked for me perfectly on KDE4. It may very
well be that it's just something wrong with my (I guess rather special)
distro/set-up, I just can't figure out what and how to fix it. So in case it's
just something simple, I wouldn't mind a heads-up. Thanks!
