I just confirmed that you are 100% correct.  If I unload the tnefParse plugin,
it has no problems with that message being in the incoming mailspool and it
doesn't crash. I can also view the message with no problem.

However, after the Email makes it into Claws, if I then turn tnefParse back
on/load it, then the moment I select the offending message for viewing, Claws
will crash.  And since it is new, it will auto-view when clicking on that
folder (inbox).

In our case, we need that plugin on for users to be able to access TNEF, and I
have recompiled Claws in a way that prevents users from changing most of their
settings (so they don't screw up things).  So users can't toggle plugins on and
off at will.  I don't what we are going to do right now.  Still thinking about

Not sure I understand how this is resolved, though.... if it causes Claws to
crash, isn't that a Claws or plugin problem that needs fixing?

Anyway, thanks for the quick and accurate response!!
