If there's a thread marked as ignored, when I download new mail, any new messages belonging to it should be marked as ignored as well. Usually this happens. Sometimes, however, the new messages, while being correctly inserted in the thread, are not marked as ignored. When this happens, the thread seems to loose its "ignored" status, since any message later added to it aren't marked as ignored. When this happens, I have to toggle the "ignored" status on the thread twice to get it back to the current status: the first time, the thread becomes "not ignored", the second time it becomes correctly "ignored" again
Steps to Reproduce:
Mark a thread as ignored, then download new mail containing messages which belong to the ignored thread
Sometimes, the new messages in the thread are not marked as ignored
The new messages in the thread should be marked as ignored
I confirm this in 4.8.2.
And I confirm in 4.9.2.
Seems to be load-related. While upgrading from Kubuntu 12.04 to 12.10 just now, with Kontact still running, I had many more messages than usual not marked as ignored in previously ignored threads. The disk drive was being used heavily.
Still happening in 4.10.1.
Frequency of occurrence is much reduced in recent releases. However, following a kernel crash several new messages in ignored threads were not marked as ignored. Using Kmail 4.12 and POP3. I'm wondering if the problem only happens now after a kernel crash.
Problem occurred in 4.13.
(No kernel crash involved, so my comment 4 is not relevant.)
This bug has only been reported for versions before 4.14, which have been unsupported for at least two years now. Can anyone tell if this bug still present?
If noone confirms this bug for a Framework-based version of kmail2 (version 5.0 or later, as part of KDE Applications 15.12 or later), it gets closed in about three months.
I'm not currently experiencing the problem in 5.1.3.
Thanks for reporting back, Greame
