Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from: Mandriva RPMs
Let me present the situation that justify my request.
On one hand, in my company, we have an internal IM system on which I'm connected to with Kopete.
On the other hand, my company provide a Socks Proxy especially for "other IM systems" with the outside world. This specific Socks Proxy is different from other socks proxy I may use or the usual HTTP proxy I use to browse the web.
The result is I would like to be able to specify a proxy setting, different from default, on a "per account basis".
Actually, it seems GAIM has something that looks like what I need (the problem is that I prefer kopete as my IM client...). On each account settings, it presents, in the "Advanced" tab, either "Use Global Proxy Setting" or "No Proxy", "HTTP", "Socks4", ... with dedicated values to this account.
Do you think this is something which could be added in Kopete future releases?
It's in my plan.

I would like to send all IM traffic over TOR because it makes it much harder for an potential attacker to find relations between me and my contacts.
So you got my vote. I think it should be possible in KDE to select a proxy at least for each application and not just all or nothing.

there is only support for socks5 in Qt4 [that I know of].
And HTTP. But not SOCKS4.
SVN commit 1138562 by shaforo:

Thanks Kopete Team,
