Version: 1.2.3 (using KDE 4.4.1)
It would be to the programs benefit to have the ability to do things like auto-accept on a per channel/server/username basis. Example: Say I would like to receive files from a friend when I'm idle or away, but only when we are in the #konversation channel, as it is, I can accept files from anyone, anytime, or I have to manually accept files on a per file basis, which I can't do away from the computer.
File Transfer is one of the main reasons people use IRC, but it could be beefed up a bit I think.
Reproducible: Didn't try

Renamed to a useful title.
Note that file transfers are in no way connected to a particular channel, so it's not possible to make a decision about whether to accept a transfer based on which channel it is "coming from". It is technically possible to do "accept this transfer if I'm in this channel on this network and the sender of the transfer request attends the same channel and matches this nick and/or hostname" but you can probably imagine that the UI to express this would be pretty wild; it might be best left to scripting. That said, per-network options and a sender identity white list seem reasonable.
