Re: [Evolution] winmail.dat attachment causes 3.16.0 to crash when message opened

Hello Milan,

Thank you very much for your help.  Removing from /usr/lib/evolution/modules solves the problem.  I have tried this with both 3.16.0 running under 15.04 and 3.16.3 running under 15.210 Gnome.  I also contacted the employee of vendor sending me the e-mails.  Employee did not realize that e-mails were being sent html when they needed to be sent plain text.

Hi, it's crashing in the library which reads the winmail.dat file. You might probably want to install debuginfo package for that libytnef, capture detailed backtrace and eventually report them the issue. I believe it's related to the attachment itself (like other attachments can survive without the crash). If you want to just avoid the crash, then remove module-tnef-attachment.* from /usr/lib/evolution/modules/ I suppose it's stored there, but it depends on your distribution. The next start evolution will not try to parse the attachment. Please note that the next update or reinstall will return the file back.
