This is exactly what happened in your case. kmail went mad and made all mails read (as per default I guess). I agree that kmail should improve its index handling but this is a long standing issue and it will go away once kmail gets akonadi support for mail storage (at least that's how I understand it). > > Hence I believe the severity should be lowered but I'm not doing it > > just now. > > Kmail's current behaviour combined with me having used before led me to > lose a whole lot of valuable information, without even asking anything > from kmail, so I still think the severity is that high, but I'm > obviously biased, as I'm pissed by what happened, so you should have the > final word. I agree but it is still an error on your side. I believe such kind of problems were the main reason the default mail storage folder was changed to kmail private location. So you are a victim here only because you used to be a kmail user a LONG LONG item ago and set up the same mail folder for mutt. Hence lowering severity. -- Modestas Vainius <firstname.lastname@example.org>
