An upgrade install from RH v6.2 to Pinstripe Beta seems to have gone
smooth, until I used kmail to check several accounts at other pop
servers. When I first connected, it asked for each accounts
passwords...which I greatfully supplied. I then went to Settings,
Configuration and manually added the passwords for each account. I
selected to Store POP password in configuration file, Delete mail from
server, Retrieve all mail, and enable interval checking set to 10
minutes. I pressed O.k., then Apply, then o.k to close the configuration
box. After the time elapsed, again it asked for each password. Thinking
maybe I needed to close kmail and logout/back in, I did those items. It
did not work either. I have tried several various ways to update the
files through configuration without luck.
Is this a problem from the "upgrade from previous version", a bug in the
new kmail itself, or a bug in the new kde?
Also, whenever I have selected under Settings, Configure, Composer
Automatically Append Signature, Use smart quoting, and Automatically sign
messages using pgp, plus security settings of PGP User identity: same as
pgp key identity...and attempt to send mail.......kmail becomes totally
unresponsive. I have waited numerous times greater than 20 minutes for it
to return to normal without luck. There appears to be no hard drive
activity, and if I try to minimize kmail, the kmail background goes white
and then all of kde does not responde. I can get out of kde by
This has been fixed in the 7.0 release.
