Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
After a "fetch" operation on my IMAP server kmail automatically selects the email that was open when I last exited the application. If the application has been open for a while this means that the selected email could be a quite old one.
What I'd expect is that kmail should remember which mail I was looking at or perhaps select the newest "already read" email. Definitly not the email that was selected when I closed the application the lst time.
