KMail/GpgOL: Incompatibility with RNP
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Assigned to me for now to clarify what to do.

I wrote an encrypted mail with KMail 6.0 and Thunderbird did not decrypt it. Likely because the mime flag, Here is a list packets from GnuPG:

The error in TB looks like:

The likely candidates for changes on our side that triggered this are:
T6582: GpgOL: set MIME Encoding hint for mime encrypted data.
T6583: KMail: set MIME Encoding hint for mime encrypted data.

Btw we should probably add TB in our QA environment to check for such things. Esp. with future changes in GnuPG we should try to use TB and maybe a bounycastle MUA (Greernshield?) to avoid creating accidental incompatibilities.

This is fixed on RNPs side:

Esp. the comment was also my knowledge that most just ignore unknown flags there
