Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.5.9-5
Severity: grave
Justification: causes non-serious data loss


Identical to bug 158978 in Launchpad, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/kdepim/+bug/158978 for additional information and reports from 
other users. The bug was also reported to affect Kmail 1.12.1 in KDE4.3.1!!

I'm using dIMAP for a Gmail account. On first connect in the morning I got a cryptic message complaining about non-readable contents on 
the IMAP server. All folders but my inbox were synchronized and the inbox was displayed as empty. Irritated by this I pressed the 
button a second time and the inbox was readable this time, but kmail instantly deleted all mails on the server (as it notified in the 
status bar) and then just downloaded the new stuff that had come in since I had left work the previous evening. It basically deleted 
several hundred messages in a few seconds. None of the subfolders were affected, though this has happened previously on my private 
account using another machine (only a subset of the inbox contents was deleted then, same Kmail version and setup).
It seems like the server error caused Kmail to update the local cache (deleting messages that were there previously) - which it should 
not do if there's been only a transmission error and no real modification on the server side. Then upon the next synchronisation it 
updates the server by actually deleting all remote messages as well.

Update 12/2009: This has happened twice in the meantime. Luckily I can access a second mirror of the IMAP so the deleted messages could 
be recovered, but others might not be that lucky.
