In the Kmail Settings --- Configure Kmail

Click on Network, then the Recieving Tab

Click ADD

Then, select IMAP, the rest should be history However, if you need further help, please post back.

Cool

Thanks for the reply, but...

I have my IMAP account as follows:
Username: tmorton:linuxmail.org#linuxmail.org
Password: <>
Host: imap.linuxmail.org

Inbox Path:
imap.linuxmail.org/user=tmorton:linuxmail.org#linuxmail.org

Show hidded folders=True

When I get messages, only the inbox folder showed up, but, Trash, Sent, Drafts, and some others should have shown up as well.
I'm at a loss :-(.

Your username is all that, and the Inbox path is all of that? That sure seems like a lot of infor for those 2 areas.

Try using less info, see what you can do with just supplying basic info like just tmorton for the username, and INBOX for your inbox path (or possibly .INBOX).

Cool

Thanks! Yes, that's my user name. However, I didn't need the "path to inbox"/inbox path. Got it working.

Hi,
What version of KMail are you using? I'm using 1.6.1. I didn't need to set anything up...it just worked :|.
If you want my settings, I'll share them.

I'm using the version coming with SuSE 9.0 pro (I think that's about the same -- at least it's not old).

Okay, I set up the connection, IMAP for receiving and SMTP for sending mail, as required by my provider. When I checked the first time for new mail, Kmail copied the folders from my provider and the "re" or subject matter of the mails in them. When I click on a mail it loads the body.

But: I want to be able to load the bodies (plural!) of selected mails (and sometimes also the attachments) for offline reading on my machine (I use a modem connection...). Thus I need a way to mark a selection of mails and to issue a "load them" command -- and the documentation has a roaring silence for that topic.

Same goes for deleting on the server of my provider (without reading the bodies of e.g. obvious advertising etc.): here I need a way to mark a selection of mails and to issue a "delete them now" command.

HOW do I do that? As I understand it, this should be the advantage of an IMAP connection. Any help or hints will be greatly appreciated .

Sending doesn't work at all, I'll have to test more to find out why the connections were refused there...
