When replying to e-mail using kmail, the original mail is not displayed, SW current

Hi all,

Running SW 64 current, and following the last update to KDE 4.5.1 I am having a strange problem with Kmail.

Receiving mail is fine, sending new mail is fine, but when replying to an email, then the original message is not displayed in the compose window as it always used to be. I have checked the kmail settings, but can see nothing which could cause this action, and just wondered if this is something anyone has come across as well, and if so, if they have managed to find out why, and effect a resolution.

I experienced this problem back when I started using Slackware64-current some months ago too. In "Settings > Configure KMail > Composer > Standard Templates" you can set the templates for a few different messages. You can see there the templates for "New Message", "Reply to Sender", "Reply to All / Reply to List" and "Forward Message".

I set the "Reply to Sender" template to:

But you can use any other template. Instructions are provided in the lower part of the window.

Thanks, don't know how I missed that. Used to it being there from previous versions I suppose.
