Version: 1.9.5 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
Kmail deletes all mails from an inbox.
Steps to reproduce:
- work on a client machine with kmail configured for dimap
- switch to "offline" mode
- on the server use another client and delete a message from inbox
(I use pine as a workaround for the most infamous unresolved wish
when terminating the client actually perform the deletion.
- on the client machine click on "Check Mail In"
This pops up a question, asking me if I want to go online.
answer by clicking "Online"
=> The inbox on that client machine is wiped completely. ALL MESSAGES DISCARDED.
The first time this happened to me, I couldn't believe what I saw, and
clicked "Check Mail In" for a second time: The worst mistake I made in years:
Consequence: the delete events were propagated to the server resulting in
irrecoverable loss of all messages in the inbox on the server, too.
Can you still reproduce this with a current version of KDE (4.3) ?

That kind of catastrophe you don't want to reproduce in your life time.
Feel free to close.
After seeing no action for some years I had no other option than moving away from kmail. I liked it back then, but deleting inbox is unforgivable, if you ask me.
You never gave info from 2009
so for sure we can't help you.
And for sure all code changed from 2009
