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

I assume your trash folder is in local folders? Are these the same local

No, after I found out that deleting of messages doesn't work, I switched the
trash folder to the IMAP trash!

And this caused kmail to crash. You know, there is another bug: If you change
the trash folder, kmail won't start again. There is an unresolved, seven years
old bug, see here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=255104

And it's not only me, please see the other users who complain. However,
somebody closed the bug report "worksforme".

Yes, the realms of kdepim are strange.

However, I redirected trash to the IMAP trash. And after making kmail start
again and deleting the SPAM message (as described in another email), I found
that message in the IMAP trash folder.

So, in principle it works. If you search for Ā»undeletable messagesĀ« in kmail,
you'll find dozends of messages about the issue. Users installed
akonadiconsole and try to fix it in the browser of it. Doesn't work.

I hit a lot of bugs of kmail and akonadi in the last seven weeks. POP3 and
filtering ceased to work, kmail randomly downloaded messages and akonadi
crashed hundreds of times. This is better now, after I started experimenting
with IMAP. But redirecting of the trash folder is an issue and deleting
messages as well.

And I never walked alone! Whenever I hit something, I found other users
complaining about the same bug.

Regards,

Alexander
