It looks as though the Jolla Mail program might have problems displaying 'quoted-printable' emails?

I have recently received emails from a business contact which are plain-text, but 'quoted-printable' and in Windows-1252 charset. My hunch is that it is quoted-printable rather than the charset that is causing the problems, but I'm afraid I don't have the time to try to generate test emails to verify this.

I can see the message headers in my inbox message list, but where I would normally expect to see the start of the message body, I can only see "No preview".

When I open the email, the message body is entirely blank. The email is text-only, there is no HTML part.

The email displays correctly in Thunderbird on my computer.

(Running Sailfish and the corresponding version of Jolla Mail (sorry, I don't know the version number). I have now checked, and this problem still exists in, (Jolla Mail

This bug has been around for a very long time already. It's not restricted to this kind of emails. I have many HTML/Multipart MIME emails with different encodings and these are also not displayed at all.

Do you mean, the mail has an attachment, which is 'quoted-printable', but it is not shown? IMHO only attachments can be 'quoted-printable', or am I wrong?

Yes, you're wrong. The mail itself can be encoded as quoted-printable. (Also, do you know what "IMHO" means? A statement like "only attachments can be..." would be a statement of fact or knowledge, not an opinion, so saying "IMHO" seems very wrong.)
