View Full Version : kmail loses e-mails after upgrade to Fedora 9

22nd May 2008, 11:57 PM
I (perhaps unwisely) decided to do a clean install of Fedora 9, overwriting my old Fedora 8 install. I dilligently backed up everything before doing so.

Fedora 9 installed OK and looks good, but I have a problem with K-Mail. I copied my old Mail folder, and ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail and ~/.kde/share/apps/kmailrc into the new Fedora 9 install. When I start up K-Mail everything looks good, until I click on an e-mail at which point the sender name, subject etc. all change to "Unknown" and no e-mail is shown.

Googling reveals that people have had similar problems with K-Mail in the past, but none of the solutions offered seem to be helping. Has anyone seen a similar problem? Or got more ideas for how to fix this?
