Re: [opensuse-factory] IMAP: Can't delete emails in kmail

After POP3 and filtering emails has been broken by KDE Applications 16.12, I
switched to IMAP.

Now, I can read the emails (phew!), but I can not delete them. I filed a bug
report here:

In the right click menu, the lines about deleting are grey.

Funny enough, if kmail suspects an email to be spam and offers this field
»Papierkorb« (»trash«), clicking on this moves the email to the trash

By the way, there is an other bug, changing the trash folder prevents kmail
from starting, see here: or

Any ideas, how to delete emails from the kmail side?



There's a know quirck, what happen if you remove the option, empty trash on
quit. I've that setup and no more crash of whatever.
(Sorry to read that's still the case after at least one year and a half)

Otherwise, beside there's a focus keyboard that come from QT which doesn't
allow you to select a message and use shift+delete directly, you can only use
the del key or right clic delete or suppress.

Work nicely here with 12 imaps account on TW 20170208.

Okay I'm a bit special as I'm using a global postgresql db (for good reasons)
with all mail or part stored directly in the db.
