Im using kmail with a slow connection.
Some times, when i want to view emails on a folder, it starts fetching data, but, it gets stuck there. (due to slow connection)

From then, that folder becomes corrupt. kmail forgets about all previous emails on that folder and the folder icon stays as 'loading' forever.

Restarting kmail/akonadi doesnt help. Last time it happened I had to remove my imap account and add a new one.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Use kmail for a month using a slow connection.

Actual Results:  
kmail forgets about previous emails on a folder.

Expected Results:  
It shouldnt forget any email.

I think I can describe what happens on the attached screenshot easier.

The 'Maintainance' and 'inbox' folders on my folders list has become corrupt. This means:

1) They have the 'loading' icon forever. The moment i open kmail, they have that loading icon.

2) They forgot all emails 'prior' their coruption. This means, my inbox was working fine. But at some point, the issue came up. From that point, it only shows emails from then.

(You can see that my inbox is supposed to have 3280 emails, but its only showing one)

Im available on #kde-devel for any more info.

This is IMAP right, not POP3.

I updated kdepim.

The bug is still there. However, instead of trying to load it forever, after a minute kmail throws this error:

"Unknown error. (Unable to fetch item from backend)"
