Hello SuSE people,
Using Kmail 1.9.1 Am subscribed to several mailing list including this
one. Designated folders for each list. I use the "Mailing List
Management" tool to designate the folders as mailing lists. That works
for that session only. If I close Kmail and restart it the setting is
Any idea what I can do to make Kmail remember these settings, or is it a
bug in Kmail?
It shouldn't be. It works for me with the same version of KMail.
Firstly, if you are not using the "detect automatically" function, check
that you are clicking the Add button to move the mailing list address from
the text entry to the list of addresses. That's the basic sanity check.
Will,Thanks for the offer of help. I am using the "detect automatically"
function. Not sure what you mean when you say "click the Add Button"
Secondly, see if these settings are being saved at all.
KMail saves these settings in its main config file,
You should have a group of settings for each folder in there. The name of
the folder varies depending on your mailserver etc, but you can locate it
using the name of the folder as it appears in kmail, eg:
Can you check that kmail can write to that file?
Yes, checking that file shows that KMail is writing to it.
Also, set up Mailing List Management, close the dialog, but don't exit
kmail, then load the config file in an editor and see if the changes are
there? KMail writes these immediately.
OK, did that. The changes are being written there. Unfortunately when I close
out "X" and log in again the changes seem to have disappeared. Have no idea
why. As I mentioned in the other thread, when I reverted to KDE 3.4.2 this
problem went away so I never pursued it further.
I apologize for my boorish behavior in not replying to you. Hopefully this
problem will have "gone away" with 3.5.2 I am somewhat trepeditious of this
though, hence my question about 3.5.2
