KMail doesn't save a folder option
Last modified: 2015-02-17 12:37:13 EST
Description of problem:
I want to always hold my messages in offline-mode. Also I want to get full messages with body at recieving time. For this I used an option in folder settings. But after restarting my PC this option is inchecked and I havent't all messages in my mailbox.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start KMail
2. Right mouse button on non-local folder
3. Choose "Folder Properties..."
4. Go "Retrieval" tab
5. Set checked "Always retrieve full messages"
6. Press "Ok"
7. Close KMail
8. Do 1-4 steps again.
"Always retrieve full messages" is unchecked
"Always retrieve full messages" is checked
KMail version 4.11.2
In your IMAP resource settings, go to "Advanced" tab and check "Enable disconnected mode". This will fetch full messages from the server on sync.
Cool! It's works not. But it is not obviously. Looks like a bug. "Always retrieve full messages" option should enable "Enable disconnected mode".
(In reply to Ivan Romanov from comment #2)
> "Always retrieve full messages" option should enable "Enable disconnected mode".
Not really, it should internally enable disconnected mode for the single selected folder. Enabling the disconnected mode in the IMAP resource settings enables it globally for all folders, which is not always the intended behavior.
Hmm, just checked the code and it should work.
Could you please follow these steps so that we can find what's wrong?
1) Set the "Always retrieve full message" to some folder
2) open Akonadi Console (akonadiconsole)
3) in Akonadi Console, go to "DB Browser" tab
4) Select "CollectionTable" and click refresh
You should see a table with list of all folders, find the one you have changed and check values of cachePolicyInherit (should be 0) and cachePolicyLocalParts (should be "ENVELOPE HEAD RFC822").
Now restart Akonadi (akonadictl restart, or Server->Restart Server in Akonadi Console), restart Akonadi Console and repeat from step 2) to confirm that the values are still there.
Finally, click "Check mail" in KMail to synchronize all folders and emails, wait until it's done, then check the values in Akonadi Console again whether they changed (they should not).
With "Enable disconnected mode" on I can't get any new mail. I can see only old messages.
I disabled this option. And I immeditally got new messages. (Before allready saw this messages in web-browser).
After restarting Akonadi cachePolicyLocalParts changed. Now is "ENVELOPE HEAD" (without "RFC822").
After checking mail values not changed.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
