Search (shortcut "s") does not find any results at all, regardless of search criteria.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open "Find message windows" on a folder (IMAP inbox in my case)
2. Search for something you know there should be matches, e.g. a known subject or sender
Empty result list, empty search folder
Result list containing matching mails.
Kmail Version 5.0.1 KDE Frameworks 5.14.0 Qt 5.5.0 (built against 5.5.0)
After initial setup of Kmail and accounts, "Folder Properties / Maintenance / Indexing" of the folder in question was showing
[x] Enable Full Text Indexing
Still not indexed
I was able to change this to
Indexed 30 items of this collection
by deleting ./config/baloorc and "akonadictl restart", however, search result still is empty regardless of what I search for.
Still unresolved with KMail 5.1.
Is this still an issue in KMail 5.1.1? I had a similar problem, but it seems to be fixed now.
Unfortunately still unresolved with KMail 5.1.1
Can you check if you have a package called "akonadi-search" or similar installed?
extra/akonadi-search 15.12.1-1 [Installiert]
I also tried again the "deleting ./config/baloorc and 'akonadictl restart'" thing and cycling the "Enable Full Text indexing" property (Folder Properties / Maintenance / Indexing) of my the mail folders I'm testing with to no avail.
The indexing status shown here ("Indexed n items of this collection") matches the actual number of mail items of my folders, however all indexing results seem to be hidden somewhere.
Sorry, typo again, it's "~/.config/baloorc".
Can you try with a fresh user? I.e., set up an IMAP account, let it download and index some emails, and try to search in them? This should show if some configuration error is the reason.
I see a strange behaviour: When I tried this with another (barely used) account, the bug was also there (no results at all). I then deleted the search folder (to see if https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=353318 also applies to me) and after that and a KMail restart, my searches for the first time showed some results. The same is true for my own account.
So my current workaround seems to be:
1. Delete the search folder
2. Restart KMail to fix the folder control corruption
Sometimes the result list is empty then, sometimes not, but opening the search folder always seems to show the results expected, at least in a few quick tests.
I see the same behavior. Also choosing a different name for the search folder seems to help sometimes.
I think this is actually the same bug as https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=353318
Stili unresolved in Version 5.2.0
(Arch pacman: upgraded kmail (15.12.3-1 -> 16.04.0-2))
Add Kmail 5.3.0 to the list. 0 search results.
