Description Philippe ROUBACH 2011-07-28 14:33:03 UTC
Version:           2.1.1 (using KDE 4.6.5) 
OS:                Linux

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.

Reproducible: Always

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

Actual Results:  
with the assistant we can only create an imap4 count

Expected Results:  
with the assitant we can create imap4, pop3, local etc. counts

OS: Linux (i686) release
Compiler: gcc

Mandriva 2010.0 rc2 32 bit
Comment 1 Philippe ROUBACH 2011-07-28 14:34:05 UTC
this is Mandriva 2011.0 rc2 and not Mandriva 2010.0 rc2
Comment 2 Torgny Nyblom 2011-07-28 17:26:21 UTC
Have you installed the kdepim-runtime packages?
Anyway this works so marking as downstream as I strongly suspect that this is a mandriva issue
Comment 3 Philippe ROUBACH 2011-07-28 18:29:53 UTC
what are the names of the packets ?
Comment 4 Philippe ROUBACH 2011-07-28 18:33:18 UTC
i found only one packet


it is not installed

is this the good packet to install ?
Comment 5 Philippe ROUBACH 2011-07-28 19:08:59 UTC
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
Comment 6 Philippe ROUBACH 2011-07-31 07:40:54 UTC

Comment 9 Philippe ROUBACH 2012-01-26 16:18:14 UTC

Comment 10 Laurent Montel 2012-01-26 17:18:04 UTC
Ok valid. We can't select imap or pop3.
By default we select imap.
Will improve it to allow to select imap or pop3

why not in kde 4.8.1 ?

there are a new mandriva and mageia in may 2012 and the next ones one year later !
Comment 14 Laurent Montel 2012-01-27 09:04:06 UTC
As explain in comment 11, I added new i18n so I can't add to 4.8.1
