Description of problem:
If kmail is unable to resolve a domain (mail.foo.bar) because the authoritative dns for foo.bar is no where to be found, it displays the unknown host mail.foo.bar message. Then after a minute or so it crashed.
My setting with mail.foo.bar is imaps. Interval check of 2 minutes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure an imap account in a foo server
2. Nuke the resolver for the foo server
3. check your mail
Actual results:
Kmail displays the unknown host message and crashed.

Expected results:
Kamil displays the unknown host message

Cannot reproduce here (w/ kdepim 4.2.96).
Can you provide more information or test a newer package kdepim version? Going to close as WORKSFORME if no further problems are reported in two weeks.
Comment 3 Nicolas Troncoso Carrere 2009-07-22 10:08:46 EDT
I tried to reproduce the problem. This seems to have been fixed in some version since 4.1.

Go ahead and Close the ticket.
