Actually that was what I meant, so I apologize for the
convoluted sentence. :/ I have KDE 3.0.3 installed, but still
prefer Mutt for my MUA so I'm not as "up" on KMail versions as I
guess I should be. However, I appreciate your clarification and
table addition (once again)!

BTW, do you know if KMail 1.5.x will include the ability to
encrypt attachments, or will they still need to be manually
encrypted beforehand and prior to being attached to the mail

Thanks again!
