If you have your home directory on a network share (i.e. NFS, AFS, etc.) and the network connection is down (or the share is not available for other reasons), KMAIL starts to delete folders from the IMAP server in DIMAP mode. Shared folders with write permission and personal folders are affected.
Mails not captured by a backup or other client are lost.
Probably a duplicate of either bug 143263 or bug 65571. Please check that.
Its more like 65571 but you don't even need to restart any kmail sessions. For AFS, for i.e., you might just want to use "unlog" or wait until your token expires and kmail starts to purge all mails on the server.
Is this still a problem with recent kmail versions?
Hello! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this version of Kmail has been unmaintained for many years so I am closing this bug. Please try using the latest version of Kmail to see if your issue persists. If it does, please submit a new bug in "kmail2". Thank you!
