Version: 2.1.1 (using KDE 4.6.5)
using kmail assistant to create a count does not offer choice between pop3, imap4 etc.
you can only create an imap4 count with the assistant
with kmail 1 the assistant offers the choice.
Steps to Reproduce:
launch trhe assitant to create a count and follow it till the end
go to kamail setting > count
go to count
select the count you created
click on "modify"
you see this is an imap4 count
with the assistant we can only create an imap4 count
with the assitant we can create imap4, pop3, local etc. counts
OS: Linux (i686) release 18.104.22.168-desktop-1mnb2
Mandriva 2010.0 rc2 32 bit
this is Mandriva 2011.0 rc2 and not Mandriva 2010.0 rc2
Have you installed the kdepim-runtime packages?
Anyway this works so marking as downstream as I strongly suspect that this is a mandriva issue
what are the names of the packets ?
i found only one packet
it is not installed
is this the good packet to install ?
i found where the pb is
in the fist window
if you uncheck "search the isp parameters"
in the second windows
you have the choice beteween imap4, pop3 etc.
then less parameters are automaticaly filled
if you check "search the isp parameters"
you have no choice, only imap4
but more parameters are automaticaly filled by the assistant
by default "search the isp parameters" is checked
if kmail assistant does not know automaticaly create other count as pop3 then we must change my bug report to "enhancement"
if kmail assistant knows automaticaly create other count as pop3 then it is a true bug
see the answer of Mandriva, comment 2
there is no pb of kdepim4-runtime
Still problem ?
mageia 2 alpha 3 kde 4.8.0
pb still valid
addendum to comment #8
kmail 2 (4.8.0)
Ok valid. We can't select imap or pop3.
By default we select imap.
Will improve it to allow to select imap or pop3
I work on this feature now (will be in 4.9. Need to add new i18n)

M +8 -0 accountwizard/personaldatapage.h
M +155 -27 accountwizard/personaldatapage.ui
why not in kde 4.8.1 ?
there are a new mandriva and mageia in may 2012 and the next ones one year later !
As explain in comment 11, I added new i18n so I can't add to 4.8.1
