Bug ID: 401780
Summary: Add option to disable emails from automatically
opening URLs
Product: kmail2
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS: Linux
Status: REPORTED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: general
Assignee: kdepim-***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@gmail.com
Target Milestone: ---

I've noticed that some emails will automatically open web pages upon opening
the email. Unfortunately I cannot share an example email as it contains way
too much personal information. This situation is not only annoying (I assure
you it's extremely annoying), but is a security risk as well. An option to
disable it should be added.

I'm not HTML wizard, but it seems like this line in the header may be what's
doing it.

Is this as described in
https://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20181128-1.txt?
If so, it is fixed in KDE Applications 18.12.0.
