Re: Kmail lost body of mails

These are usually ghosts of messages that were sent, or moved, but the index 
still had a record of them.. You can either drop the index, and let it 
reindex, or simply delete them.  This is a long standing issue..

PS, *grumble* Just lost kaddressbook directory, and all it's contents, did a 
file system check, and the only thing reported was a fifo gone south.. 
Kaddressbook now eats a ton of memory, and doesn't recreate the local 
directory... You think I would have learned to do regular backups while 
testing new KDE's after I lost my organizer on the last upgrade, but this 
wasn't to do with any upgrade.. Whoah is me..
