Description Francesco Locunto 2006-05-31 12:16:31 UTC
Version:           0.4 (using KDE KDE 3.5.2)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

I've configured 5 pop3 accounts in korn, and these are managed perfectly. When new mail arrives, I can see new message list and even read the content of the selected mail, but if I try to delete the selected messages, korn simply do nothing.
More in-depth, korn seems to perform the action (a "delete progression" dialog appears, but just for a little moment, and then reload mails from the mailservers) but nothing happens, the message I want to delete is there, and I can fetch it with kmail...

Thanks in advance for help!

I've just upgraded to kde 3.5.3, and the problem now is a bit different.
If a choose to delete a single message, all works pefectly, but if I choose to delete more than one message, korn succesfully deletes the first message of the list (sometimes it deletes 2 messages, but i can't guess when this happens...), and then stay forever, until i press the "Cancel" to terminate the operation. Cancelling the operation, i can see that only one or two messages are been deleted.

I've noticed that the problem occurs when deleting multiple messages from the same account. The problem doesn't occur when I delete e.g. 2 messages from 2 different accounts.

Thanks for your report.

I can reproduce it and narrowed the possible causes. If seems that the list of messages which should be deleted are not correctly seperated. I will try to commit a fix soon (properbly tomorrow).

The origional bug you reported (in KDE 3.5.2) was caused by something else.

SVN commit 553500 by mkelder:

- Changed email address.
- Corrected the making of a list of messages which have to be deleted for a given account.
  This will fix multiple messages removal from one server.
