KMail has been driving me crazy all day. It was working fine yesterday but today it either:
1.) hasn't been showing any mail on our mail server (IMAP)
2.) it has been showing mail but not anything from today
3.) it's creating new accounts for me. I launched it again a while ago and I now have four accounts in the left-hand panel (there should be three). The new one is a duplicate of an account on the IMAP server.
In case 1.) all of the panels in KMail were blank. No accounts were listed and there was, obviously, no message list.
In case 2.) I was able to list emails but nothing in the message list was newer than yaesterday.
In case 3.) I have "local folders", my "netadmin" account, my personal account, and another version of my personal account. (I guess more is better, eh?) One of the personal accounts still doesn't show any mail newer than yesterday so the new one isn't quite a duplicate.
When I go into
all I see is the "local folders" account and a single copy of my personal account. If I click on "Check Mail" the personal account listing shows that there's updates being made to the mail folders. The "new" personal account that's showing in the left-hand panel is the one that shows newer mail. I fear that if I were to delete that, I'd be left with the version of my personal account that doesn't want to display new mail and that I won't be able to delete that one. (I will, in fact, try that to see what happens. Surely things can't get any more
screwed up with KMail.)
What I'd like to do is whack the KMail configuration and start over from scratch with KMail. How do I do that?
Could this be connected with a problem with KWallet? Will some cleanup be needed in that application's configuration?
For now Evolution's mail piece is working correctly and I can use it in the short term. I recently moved to KMail when Evolution's calendar notifications stopped working (plus I was dissatisfied with the way Evolution limited the appearance of emails -- especially those with links).
One other bit that would also be nice to resolve: My local mail folders from Evolution are not visible using KMail. Normally I wouldn't care so much but that's where I retain copies of Sent mail. Losing those would sort of suck although I can still access them from Evolution. (I'm not sure where Evolution even created those. :/ This should probably should be in another thread, though.)
Versions/environment/etc ('cuz someone'll ask): OpenSUSE 12.2 (32-bit) , KMail 4.8.4.
(Now I'm off to track down that old thread I started about Horde to see if I can use that as a replacement for both these turkeys^Wemail clients.)
