Description Mike Cohler 2006-11-10 16:32:39 EST
Description of problem: kmail running from Kontact within KDE occasionally stops
receiving mail from pop server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):kdepim-3.5.5-0.1.fc6

How reproducible: Keeps happening but about every few days

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Kontact and put kmail in main window
2. Leave mail fetching every couple of minutes from remote pop server
3. Usually runs OK but periodically stops receiving new mail - and clicking
"Check Mail In" no longer updates the incoming mail.
4. If Kontact is closed and restarted then the system updates normally for a few
days until it stops as above again.
Actual results: No new mail comes in after some period

Expected results:Mail should continue to be fetched from pop server

Additional info: On a different machine in a different location fetching mail in
the same way but running fully updated FC5 instead of FC6 also shows the same
symptoms. Both systems fully up to date with yum.  This has been happening for
some months despite updates to KDE. There are no error messages in
/var/log/messages or anywhere else that I can find.

This problem has not appeared at all with F7 so I am closing this bug as
resolved in the current system.
