(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)
Version: KDE 2.2.0
Installed from: SuSE RPMs
Compiler: doesn't matter using .rpms
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified
I want to establish a filter on my incoming IMAP folder which distributes mails into other IMAP folders.
Unfortunately I can only select local folders as targets of filter actions.
(Submitted via bugs.kde.org)
CVS HEAD of today - In the target list only local folders are selectable.
IMHO also IMAP folders must be selectable to allow kmail as fully functional IMAP
not "fixed" in current CVS
Does not work in KDE 3.1.x neither
Main thread about this issue is bug #50997 - with 829 votes (today)
Even though this bug report is older maybe it's better to close this report and vote for 50997.
The main problem is still the same: IMAP filter belongs to the server. If you use a client side
imap filter you can build circular rules with two or more clients working with the same folders at
the same time. This could result in huge traffic for the mail server.
But there is no real standard for server side filtering: While "procmail" is popular, "sieve" is the
way go go - especially when using cyrus server - like kolab.
