  Evolution fail to decode TNEF attachments

Status in Ubuntu GNOME:
Status in “evolution” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When receiving an email from user using outlook, the attached files are grouped all in one tnef file.

  The content-type of this part of the email is as below:

        Content-Type: application/ms-tnef; name="winmail.dat"

  Old version of evolution decode correctly this kind of email up to
  version 3.4.0 of evolution when TNEF attachement are handled bu
  evolution plug-ins. At this time, the TNEF plugin handle mime_type =
  "application/ms-tnef" and "application/vnd.ms-tnef".

  Since this commit for evolution 3.5, https://git.gnome.org/browse/evolution/commit/?id=931191474643164e96b5778c790e42cca517e729, the mime_type handled by the TNEF module are "application/ms-tnefl" and "application/vnd.ms-tnef".

  There is an additionnal letter 'l' that prevent this module from
  working correctly!!!
