Kmail frustrating issues


Hi all!

Some frustrating issues with Kmail:
- I set it up properly to connect to an IMAP mail server. Then, Kmail downloaded all the emails fine. However, it put a double question mark in front of all emails downloaded. I don't know what these question marks means and I didn't find any clues about it in the documentation. It is ugly and disturbing and I didn't yet found a way to remove them.
- On my IMAP account, there is a sent-mail folder. However, when I send a mail using Kmail, the email is stored in the local_folder/sent-mail folder instead of the server's sent-mail folder. Didn't find any means to change this behaviour.
- More in the wishlist: Is there a way to use an embedded image viewer from within Kmail instead of needing to open another external app? A bit like Konqueror does for example.

Waouh, I think if I get answers to these, I'll be definitely in love with Kmail. So far, I'm still frustrated by little annoying things.

Regards,
Lem

Sorry Lemhki, I know "bog all" about IMAP - but you should google for the kdePIM mail archives (and if necessary join the mailing list) as there seems to be lots of people who use kmail and/or kontact for IMAP (judging by the emails that arrive in my inbox regularly).

regards

John
