Hello Larry,

please report your observations to upstream bug 


I first thought these messages you describe may have to do with your local 
filters and how KMail handles them with disconnected IMAP, but as I 
thought it over I still didn't understand it fully. 

Thing is that local filters just act locally. The changes they make are 
synchronized with the IMAP account on the next data exchange. So sure 
KMail deletes mail it filtered locally out of INBOX for example, but 
since it filtered it out of INBOX locally already I do no see how it 
comes about to delete them locally.  And for the folders it filters mail 
to it should just upload mails then.

It may be regular behavior being debugfully reported by KMail, but it may 
also be that you are seeing an issue here. Maybe someone with more indept 
knowledge on the synchronisation implementation can shed a light on this.
