Recently I started using Kmail for checking my official mails. I used the ‘disconnected imap’ feature so that I can have a local copy of my entire mailbox. But I faced problems while sending the patches using kmail. Even though the patch is inlined, it was not equivalent to mutt’s way of inlining patches.
I started using mutt. But I was very comfortable with the GUI environment to check mails in different folders. So I decided to use mutt for sending patches while kmail to read mails. Using fetchmail and procmail I have the local copy of mails. So instead of using disconnected imap, I wanted to use the local mbox as the account type in kmail. When I configured kmail to use the local mbox, it creates its own copy in .kde/share/apps/kmail folder. So I have two copies of my mails. Is there any way to specify kmail that ‘hi kmail, don’t take a local copy again, use the mbox itself’
I observed another two issues with kmail.
- I use both 32 & 64 bit Fedora distributions on my system. I configured kmail in my 64bit fedora and was using it for a long time. For some reason, I have to boot into 32bit Fedora and at that time kmail was not able to use the 64bit Fedora Kmail’s configuration and every thing was lost. When I booted into 64bit Fedora there also Kmail lost its configuration. So I need to re-start every thing (configure the account and download all mails from IMAP server).
- Another strange issue is that if the ~ partition is full, kmail tends to loose the configuration and all mails. So I need to re-start every thing.
Am I the only one facing this kind of problem(s)?
