Re: [opensuse-kde] Problem with Local Mail folder in KMail 4.9.1

When I start a new Linux account and try to configure KMail the Local Mail

contains three sub folders inbox, outbox and send-mail or similar names
according to the locale. When creating another account also the sub folder
trash appears. However starting a new mail message and trying to save it to
the drafts or templates folder that does not work and these folders are not
created. Somehow I managed to create a drafts folder, but I can't create a
templates folder.

Is this a known problem, is there some trick, or should I enter a bug report
(upstream or with openSUSE?).


This known misbehavior is easy to solve by:

Go to Settings->Configure KMail->Identities->Highlight your account and press
on Modify button (this will open Edit Identities->Go to Advanced Tab (Edit
Sent Folder, Draft Folder, Template Folder by adding the proper Folder for the
account). Press OK and everything is ready to work as used to work again.
