Description Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-05 14:44:28 UTC
Description of Problem: I moved my email (large and many) to a beta3 (Roswell) system. Everything seemed to work fine and I could recieve and filter messages. Then I tried to send a message ... oops, I got a popup message with: Sending Failed: a SMTP error occured. Command; MAIL Response: 452 Out of memory (and a bit more info) Try again .. still fails. Restart and reboot ... the same. How Reproducible: I deleted the kmail config files and ~/Mail, restarted kmail and then proceeded to "rebuild" ~/Mail from my old (saved) files occationally trying to send (successful) until at some point ...oops, cannot send again. I have rebuilt 4 times with the same end result. The "oops" point differs each time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. I can reproduce but this seems to be with all of my ~/Mail files 2. 3. Actual Results: Sending failed: Expected Results: send successful Additional Information:

Some additional info: I have managed to recover but believe that this is still a bug (or undocumented feature). I tend to keep all sent-mail plus have a lot of clutter in my inbox (plus lots of filered mailing lists). The number of extra folders does not seem to make any difference. I had 399 messages in my inbox (approx 15MB) and 1204 message in sent-mail (almost 20 MB). This info may make it more reproducable for developers.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-05 16:35:55 UTC
The "452" seems to indicate this is an actual problem during the SMTP transmission (possibly on the server side). If you're using a local smtp server, did you get any entries in /var/log/maillog?
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-05 16:46:38 UTC
The smtp server is my commercial ISP (smtp-server.cox.rr.com). The only difference between working and not working seems to be the size of sent-mail and inbox. I am going to run some tests to see if I can narrow it down.
Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-05 17:28:41 UTC
OK, I can now reproduce it at will and so should you with the following info. 1. Delete all kde and ~/Mail stuff from a users home directory. 2. login selecting kde session. 3. Start kmail and let it allocate its stuff. 4. Configure kmail filling in email address, smtp-server address, and define a pop-server. 5. close kmail 6. start kmail and compose/send a message ... send works 7. close kmail 8. copy lots of message from some other folder (I used my seawolf mailing list with some 9500+ messages and about 41MB). 9. delete ~/Mail/.inbox.index and ~/Mail/.inbox.index.sorted 10. start kmail 11. compose and send a message ... this fails with out-of-memory message.

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 6 Ngo Than 2003-06-20 08:17:03 UTC
It's seems that'is fixed in new kde upstream 3.1 or newer, which is included in RHL 9. It's also available on ftp.kde.org
