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...
