Description Stéphane Magnenat 2007-10-13 17:24:20 UTC
Version:           3.5.6 (enterprise 0.20070907.709405) (using KDE 3.5.8, Kubuntu (gutsy) 4:3.5.8-0ubuntu1)
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.22-14-rt

I just upgraded to Kubuntu Guisty RC, which lead Kontact suit to upgrade to Enterprise edition.
Now the IMAP resources (calendar, contacts, ...) do not work any more: Even if IMAP resources are enabled and "hiding resource folder" is checked, folders are still visible and IMAP resources are not used in Kontact.

Comment 1 Stéphane Magnenat 2007-10-14 10:23:14 UTC
This bug is the same as reported in Ubuntu bug tracker as 139433: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdepim/+bug/139433

The proposed manual fix, adding missing TheIMAPResourceAccount=<ID> pointing to the same ID as TheIMAPResourceFolderParent works:
[IMAP Resource]

The IMAP config dialog does not update TheIMAPResourceAccount, even if it does update TheIMAPResourceFolderParent.
Comment 2 Elan Ruusamäe 2007-10-19 19:25:50 UTC
i can confirm this, and workaround is to add manually TheIMAPResourceAccount option to [IMAP Resource] section
Comment 3 Reinhold Kainhofer 2007-10-19 19:50:28 UTC
I was also just bitten by this bug!
Workaround: Either the manual fix inthe config file or the following:
After changing the groupware format to Kolab XML in the config dialog (on a dummy account, where I can remove the created folders again later), clicking "Apply" and then switching back to the original groupware format ical, kmail uses the normal groupware folders again.

same here

Comment 6 Volker Krause 2007-12-04 07:22:36 UTC
I suspect revision 709134 to cause this problem. Can anyone test without it?
Tobias: This was a commit by you which fixes some crash, can you please have a look? For groupware format ical/vcard, the TheIMAPResourceAccount value is supposed to be 0.
Comment 7 Alexander Dorfmeister 2007-12-11 10:20:56 UTC
i can confirm the bug and the workarround on FC6 update last night to
Kontact Version 1.2.5
KMail Version 1.9.7

Comment 9 Julian Mehnle 2008-01-09 00:07:50 UTC
WTF?  Why mark bug 106647, which is much older and has a lot more votes, as a duplicate of this bug rather than the other way round?  Not a nice gesture for sure.
Comment 10 Charles Samuels 2008-01-09 00:16:37 UTC
Because I made a mistake, and also I expected bugzilla to merge the votes. Sorry.

Comment 11 Julian Mehnle 2008-01-09 00:17:30 UTC
Here's a more constructive comment:  Now that someone seems to be taking care of this neglected issue, this very bug report could be marked as a duplicate of bug 101482.

Also check out bug 107587 and bug 107894, which may be related.
Comment 12 Charles Samuels 2008-01-09 02:34:18 UTC
Julian, I'm sorry to say that I'm not "taking care" of this issue. I'm no kontact developer... I'm hoping this flurry of communication on it will remind the kontact developers to look at this, though.
Comment 13 Julian Mehnle 2008-01-09 04:19:56 UTC
Charles, bug 101482, which I was referring to, is a "kmail" bug, not a "kontact" one.  I'm not expecting _you_ to take care about it.  Just "someone". ;-)
Comment 14 michael 2008-01-23 15:21:28 UTC

Unfortunately the manual fix does not work in my case. The problems was introduced in the last version of the opensuse-pim-packages:


Allo contacts and calendar entry can be accessed within kmail but are not visible in contacts or korganizer.  

Best regards,

Comment 16 Massimo Burcheri 2008-02-04 23:00:20 UTC
I can confirm switching groupware format to Kolab XML and back is a quick work-around. That will create some subfolders in INBOX which can be deleted afterwards. imap resource functionality is restored after that switch. You can activate former resources by changing folder properties back to "contacts" "journal" etc. 
I hope this bug is fixed soon.
Comment 17 michael 2008-02-05 17:39:46 UTC
Hi, I can confirm this, switching to Kolab and back does work.

Comment 19 uli9999 2008-02-20 13:46:32 UTC
In 3.5.9, the problem still exists, but switching to Kolab leads to a crash of Kontact.
Comment 20 Thomas Trepl 2008-02-20 17:07:44 UTC
Too bad. Hopefully the workaround we work here.
Comment 21 Thomas McGuire 2008-02-27 22:14:11 UTC
Seems that there are two different issues here: The problem which can be solved with changing TheIMAPResource in the config and some other problem.

Constantly crashes when enabling imap groupware after upgrading from 3.5.8 to 3.5.9 on debian sid. Here's the back trace:

Comment 23 Roberto 2008-03-05 14:19:27 UTC
By removing the [IMAP Resource] and [Groupware] parts in kmailrc it doesn't crashes anymore on enabling. But still doesn't work; the folders for resources are not created when missing.
Comment 24 Will Stephenson 2008-07-18 23:05:56 UTC
Isn't this priority #1 for KDAB?
Comment 25 Roberto 2008-07-20 09:58:25 UTC
Maybe most of the developers are now focused on kde4.1
I think this bug will never be corrected.
Comment 26 Till Adam 2008-07-20 13:52:11 UTC
I'll have a look next week.
Comment 27 Daniel Espinoza 2008-07-21 19:41:40 UTC
does anyone know if this was corrected in KDE 4.xx ?
Comment 28 Will Stephenson 2008-07-22 20:38:52 UTC
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=165841 is the KDE 4.1 beta bug report
Comment 29 Will Stephenson 2008-07-24 17:06:52 UTC
SVN commit 837390 by wstephens:

Write the id of the account used for the imap groupware resources; this
was apparently removed by accident during a proko2 merge back in
r346441 . The xml format still worked so the bug was not visible to
KDAB.  Fixed by integrating part of the old code that that commit
removed to identify the account from the folder.

(Backported to KDE 3 version of r837366)
