Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.3)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
Often when kmail is not closed properly (such as when my computer overheats and crashes itself), I'll restart, only to find that an email that I recently received is now blank; the Subject, Receiver and Date all display in the email list, however there is no text whatsoever displayed. Sometimes the message seems permanently destroyed; other times, the message reappears if I restart kmail.
The email in general is one that I received recently; I am not sure whether such emails are destroyed because they were currently selected, or because they had been received before kmail had closed down properly.
This has happened a lot, and I can (occasionally) reproduce the behaviour by:
(1) Sending a email to myself (and select the email in the sent-mail and inbox folders - not too sure if selecting it is important)
(2) Killing kmail (Ctrl+Alt+Escape *click*)
(3) Restarting kmail, to discover that often at least one of the emails is blank.

Sounds like an index corruption. When this happens nect time, try the following: Shut down KMail, and remove the index files for that particular directory or mbox. Please report back whether this helps.

I think so, too.
