Good morning and happy Bugsquad anniversary everyone. If this is the first time you're taking part in a bug triage, don't be scared by the amount of explanatory text on this page. We hope it's easily understandable - if it isn't bug us on IRC :-)

This is the page for KMailDay4 which takes place on Saturday/Sunday, April 4/5th 2009, but feel free to start early. The aim of this bug day is to organize as many of the KMail bugs as possible, identifying duplicate bug reports and already fixed bugs. Our targets for triage are bugs listed in under the product kmail.


You don't need any programming experience to help out with Triaging, but you will need a recent version of KMail, either svn trunk or a recent release (eg. KDE 4.2.2). Information on setting up KDE from trunk can be found here. If you're having trouble installing KDE, feel free to drop by on #kde-bugs early to get some help.

General information

  • This page has useful information on how to not mis-mark bugs. In particular, "duplicates are hard". Generally we don't want to claim things are duplicates when they aren't. Make sure you get approval from a developer before you mark something a duplicate. We don't want to create more work for the developers!
  • Be sure to join #kde-bugs on, as this is where the bug-day will be coordinated. (You can even join now!)


First of all, put your name and the version of KMail you are testing with into the Sign-in section. Then read the descriptions of the various sections to file bugs in carefully.

Junior Jobs

KMail is in search for bugs which are easy enough to fix for someone just starting out developing for KDE or KMail. Those kinds of bugs are called "Junior Jobs". If you think a bug sounds really easy to fix so it might qualify as a junior job, please put it in the "Junior Job Proposals" section. They will later be checked by the KMail developers if they really fit the scheme. In case a developer is around, you might as well ask him right away.


  1. Select one of the batches of bugs you'd like to do and pick it by putting your name into the appropriate column.
  2. Execute the query to get the list of bugs and go through the bugs one by one.
    1. Read the bug description and the comments carefully and try to reproduce the bug.
    2. Post a comment on bugzilla explaining what you found out. Be sure to also put the version of KMail you are testing with in the comment.
    3. Put the bug into the appropriate section and describe your findings here as well (eg. "Can't reproduce any longer" or "This bug is still reproducible for me"). If there's something special about a bug, you can prepend a little label like eg. crash. Please mark every bug with your IRC nickname. You can easily do that by appending ~~~.
    4. Check if the bug's Version field is set properly. The version field for KMail bugs should always contain the last KMail version the bug is/was reproducible with. If the bug is no longer reproducible and it's unclear which version the bug last appeared in, please set it to the version you think it last happened.
    5. Check if the bug's component is set correctly. It will be of great help when checking for duplicates (eg. comparing similar bugreports in the "Disconnected IMAP" component). If you lack permissions to change the component or are unsure about it, please put the bugs in the "needs component change" section along with a comment.
    6. Check if the bug might qualify as a "Junior Job". If so, please put it in the "Junior Job Proposal" section.
    7. Mark the bug as triaged by adding the triaged keyword on the bug. Again if you lack the permissions to do so, additionally put it in the "Needs triaged keyword" section.
  3. If you're done with your batch, pick another one and start from the top :-)


Some bugs might have documents that expose the bugs attached, for some bugs you might be able to create data that shows the buggy behaviour. In both cases we have to add the testcase keyword. If you lack permissions to do so, additionally add the bug to the "Needs testcase keyword" section.


If something has no clear instructions on how to reproduce it, or has little useful information, add a comment asking the reporter for more detail. Then list it in the bugs awaiting feedback section. Be polite, we want to be nice to our bug reporters!

Is it a big bug?

Prioritizing is good. We're especially interested in problems that result in dataloss. Let's keep track of them.

Double Check!

Please list bugs here to get a second opinion before making the change in bugzilla. This also gives a record of what we've done for the developers to check.

Keep this page updated!

After adding triaged bugs on this page, you should keep an eye on their bugzilla status. Add yourself on the CC field in bugzilla to be informed about updates. When a bug is closed on bugzilla, it should be updated on this page.

You can use the tag <s>...</s> to mark a bug as done like this.


  • You can edit single sections of this page if you you check Enable section editing via edit links in your TechBase Preferences.
  • Sometimes you might encounter edit conflicts if several people are working on the wiki page at once. We can mostly avoid those by keeping notes of the bugs we encounter in a text editor and file several of them later at once (don't forget to save).
Please be sure to sign every bug or comment you add to this page with your irc nickname. You can use the wiki markup ~~~ to insert your wiki username automatically (but only do this if it is the same as your IRC nickname, otherwise write your IRC nickname in by hand).

Common Bugs

There are some bugs which are commonly reported several times. If you found such a bug (or think you did), you can put it here:

Message list related

  • bug #142609 - Column sizes aren't saved
  • bug #187217 - Can't change column order, column order isn't saved
  • bug #181794 - Message list contains a dotted "tree line" even in flat view
  • bug #178402 - Configured custom fonts aren't used

Account loss

There should be plenty of bugs which are related to loosing accounts or settings (either on upgrade or on crash). If you find one of them, put them here.

IMAP filters

These are tricky. Let's see if we can find some dups. They might not be!


Tell developers what you are testing with. (If you expect to upgrade between now and BugDay, put what version you are using now next to the bugs/comments that you put on this page.)

Please give distro/version or SVN branch/trunk with revision below (or just beta2 if you're using that):

Division of Labour

Please choose a batch that is not already taken and then query for all bugs in that batch. Please mark you irc nickname in the table below to show which month's bugs you are working on to avoid duplication of effort.

If you have to leave before you can finish your batch, please put the last bug you triaged as well as if you're going to finish triaging in the table so others will know where you left off.

With these more recent bugs, if the report has been looked at by a developer (i.e. they cc'd themself or commented on it or posted a patch), and it seems like the issue is fixed, BUT the developer didn't close it, make sure the bug really can be closed. Often it can't.

The batches

Information mostly for people organizing:

  • The template query for the batches is this one.
  • The query contains bugs filed in 2008.

Bugs that need changes that require permissions

If you put a bug into this section, please be sure you additionally put it into the appropriate Completed Bugs section.

Bugs to be marked as TRIAGED

Bugs that need the triaged keyword adding to them should be listed here.

Bugs to be marked as TESTCASE

Bugs needing the testcase keyword added to them should be listed here.

Bugs needing version field changed

Bugs should be listed here if their version field needs to be changed according to what written above.

Bugs needing component field changed

If a bug can be categorized better by changing its component field but you lack the permission to do it, please put the bug here.

Special interest bugs

High profile

Some bugs seem to be more important than the others. If you feel a bug is really really (really) important and you can still reproduce it, please put it here.

  • bug #163071 Crash when deleting messages from inbox - seems to be confirmed by popularity. Cannot reproduce myself, though. lytenyn

Junior Job Proposals

If you think a bug looks easy enough to fix for a developer just starting to develop KMail (or even KDE), please put it here for review by a developer. Of course you can get a developer's opinion right away if you catch one on IRC.

A list of existing KMail Junior Jobs can also be found here.

Completed Bugs

Below lists the various sections for completed bugs. This aids everyone in double checking each other's work. In addition this allows those of us that don't have bugzilla permissions to list bugs so that the folks with the permissions can follow up.

Bugs to be marked as RESOLVED

Bugs that are no longer reproducible and have been fixed already go into this section. After they are double-checked they can be closed.

  • bug #156991 The bug seems fixed. I'm not able to reproduce it. Saving an opened email (.mbox) as draft doesnt crash Kmail. Someone should double check this, maybe with another IMAP server, for example. I've used dovecot 1.0.15. FiNeX
  • bug #156653 The bug seems fixed on trunk (I don't know if it has been fixed on latest 3.5). I'm not able to reproduce it. FiNeX
  • bug #156298 Even this is fixed on trunk but I don't know if it has been fixed on latest 3.5. I'm able to drag/drop URIs from emails. FiNeX
  • bug #156190 Another bug less: when kmail crash just after restoring a draft, the draft is no lost anymore like 3.5. FiNeX
  • bug #166078 There is a progressbar when checking what the server supports. Jtamate Could reproduce bug with trunk. Moved to "Step-by-Step-instructions".dtritscher 22:04, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

  • bug #160990 Bug not reproducible using trunk. Scrolling the email works correctly even with attachments. FiNeX
  • bug #159438 - Can't paste into mail body. WORKSFORME. tmcguire had the same resolution. Lemma
  • bug #159489 - Wrong folder sort order with specific locale. WORKSFORME. had already been unreproducible for other commenter. Lemma
  • bug #159998 - Signature with tabs showing up wrong. WORKSFORME. had already been unreproducible for other commenter. Lemma
  • bug #161863 Re-sending an email sent with a identity whic is not the default one, works fine on trunk. FiNeX

  • bug #160783 - Can't import thunderbird mails. Can't reproduce (was never confirmed). Lemma
  • bug #162839 - find messages: outdated info about number of scanned emails - the find dialog does not display this information anymore in kde4.2.1 lytenyn
  • bug #146247 Developer+commit claims to have fixed the bug. I can't reproduce as I don't have a ldap resource. No one else replied ever. (should this be in the "feedback" list?) Dario_Andres
  • bug #162430 Moving a lot of emails doesn't freeze kmail on my PC. Asked some details to the reporter. FiNeX
  • bug #162660 Cannot reproduce on KDE4. The mail address is rightly printed on the mail header information pane. FiNeX
  • bug #162736 Deleting a folder containing subolfeder works as expected (on a Dovecot IMAP server). FiNeX
  • bug #166585 Disconnecting kmail from the IMAP server, doesn't crash it (I've removed the network patch cable and changed the IP). FiNeX
  • bug #146782 Has been working for me for many months now. Could also be an exim bug, but not sure. gkiagia
  • bug #146815 Works on trunk: distribution lists are displayed on the "select addresses" dialog. FiNeX
  • bug #147026 Folder navigation works fine, anyway it has been rewritten since KDE 3.5, so the reported bug probably is not valid for KDE 4. FiNeX
  • bug #147411 - Important column resizes if removing the last important mark. No longer reproducible. Lemma
  • bug #147464 - Can't choose HTML representation without mouse. There's a shortcut for that now. Lemma

  • bug #171735 - Kmail 1.11.2 no longer asks to save to addressbook to send encrypted message. Ruchir

Bugs with test-cases

If the bug is still reproducible and has a test-case attached, put it here.

  • bug #147740 - Error validating signature. I can still reproduce using latest trunk. Unsure if it's KMail or the key not working. Lemma

Bugs with step-by-step instructions

If the bug has proper step-by-step instructions to reproduce the bug it should go here. Actually most reproducible bugs should end up in this section.

  • bug #167960 when gpg-agent is not there, kmail sends encrypted mails without asking the password, even if it does not have it yet. Jtamate

Bugs to be marked as INVALID

Bugs which are no longer valid go here. Please provide the reason why you think this bug is invalid. Some examples of when a bug should be closed as INVALID:

  • The reported behaviour is not a bug.
  • The bug is completely unrelated to KMail.

This list is not exhaustive. If you feel a bug is invalid for any other reason, be fure to list it here, mentioning why you think it is invalid. Before closing a bug as INVALID, be sure to get a developer's opinion.

  • bug #158078 Reporter complains about kmail storing it's mail data in .kde/share/apps/kmail -> suggest INVALID/WONTFIX dtritscher 08:20, 4 April 2009 (UTC) Marked as WONTFIX by somebody else dtritscher 07:46, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  • bug #162539 This seems not a real problem: if you use a wrong filter, is correct that the filter doesn't work. FiNeX
  • bug #165024 - This was a FireFox bug. Not our problem if they don't respect fd.o specs. Lemma
  • bug #150411 - closing the application when the close button is clicked is absolutly ok ;) - dtritscher 14:49, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Bugs to be marked as DUPLICATE

Duplicates (or possible duplicates) found should be placed here along with a link to the bug you think it is a duplicate of.

  • bug #163962 - receiver/sender column in dIMAP folder marked as sent-message folder in identity settings. tmcguire already added a link to bug #153356. To me they look like duplicates (apart from that still reproducible). Lemma
  • bug #147706 - When entering a regexp search on an online IMAP account KMail asks if it should download the folder for every single folder. Possible duplicate of bug #113879 Lemma

Bugs that should be WISHES

Sometimes there are bugs that are actually wishlist items. If you think a bug is not really a bug please put it here.

  • bug #167068 looks like a wish to support Mail-Followup-To headers.

Bugs needing users with particular setups

Bugs that require particular software or hardware that you don't have available should be listed here with a description of the non-standard requirement.

  • bug #147159 CRAM-MD5 authentication method needed on POP server for testing. FiNeX

Non english locales

Bugs requiring non-English locales should be listed here, along with the locale they require.

Bugs needing attention from KMail developers

Add bugs here if you need to find out whether the observed behaviour is inteded, or if there's some other reason that it would be useful for a KMail developer to take a look at. Make sure you indicate why the bug needs attention. A second common reason to put a bug here is if it has already been heavily commented on by the application's developer. In the latter case please only add bugs you can reproduce.

Always defer policy decisions to developers.

  • bug #159213 - Anti-virus filtering. I can't figure out which anti-virus tool KMail is using (or if it's not using any). Possible high-priority. Lemma
  • bug #159634 - autosaved messages are removed on KMail startup making you loose them if you quit KMail before the next autosave triggers. Lemma
  • bug #160881 - GPG encrypted mail not working. There was a commit but the bug's still open. Lemma
  • bug #163235 - No phishing protection for links in HTML messages - Fixed in KDE4, user wants backport to KDE3.5. This should be decided by the developers. lytenyn
  • bug #161702 - Identities can only be used for new account after changes have been "applied". Maybe a popup on changing the configuration area with an option to "discard" or "apply" (see Systemsettings->Appearance) would be a solution? Lemma
  • bug #161758 - locale problem with accented filename in attachment: can't open in OOo (non UTF8 system). Works for me but I have a different locale (UTF-8). Lemma
  • bug #164448 - Crash on removing a filter while filtering is in progress. I don't manage to remove the filter (too slow or not possible any longer?) Lemma
  • bug #159846 - Incorrect folder size? Seems like the behaviour is what's to be expected. Lemma
  • bug #162360 Performance issue: I'm not able to reproduce but I've a powerful PC, maybe on slower system it could be more evident. FiNeX
  • bug #166653 Performance issue discovered on big local mail directories. Some coding hints has been provided. Develpers could give an eye on this problem. FiNeX
  • bug #147178 - mail check interval related. I think this is already implemented in KMAccount::checkDone(). Lemma
  • bug #149999 - Im quite sure that described behaviour is correct. Should be WONTFIX imho. dtritscher 12:53, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  • bug #162314 - Was able to reproduce the crash, but the backtrace I got differed from the reporter's. CondorDes
  • bug #146346 - The provided email is malformed -- it's missing the charset in the Content-Type header. However, KMail might want to fallback on the encoding specified in the XML/HTML headers. Devs should decide. CondorDes
  • bug #168358​ - Not sure if it's correct behavior. HTML editor should not get all html tags but just formatted message. Ruchir

Bugs awaiting feedback

Some bugs are hard to reproduce because the reporter left out some explanation you'd need. In that case we have no other means but to request some more information. Bugs for which feedback from the reporter has been requested should be put here. They should be revisited in 30 days to see if there's any response. If there's feedback

Feedback should only be requested for bugs if you have tried and failed to reproduce them or if the report contains insufficient information to try and reproduce the bug. Requesting feedback for a bug should be seen as a last resort only.

  • bug #107425 Has been waiting for nearly 4 years for feedback Beer
  • bug #155977 I'm not able to reproduce it, but maybe I've not correctly understand what the reporter wrote. I've asked for a quick feedback. FiNeX
  • bug #166150 Probably solved. it was not has hard as the asexual bipartition of mails. Jtamate
  • bug #158949 - CPU usage rising on checking dIMAP account. Can't reproduce on r948809, asked reporter. Lemma
  • bug #159194 - Particular bug I've never seen before (user gets an error on connecting to imap, yet everything works normally). Asked if it still happens. Lemma
  • bug #156319 A fix has been provided. I don't know if has solved the problem. FiNeX
    • I asked the reporter to retest with a version that has the fix. Lemma
  • bug #161136 Waiting for info (asked if using IMAP or POP, or something else). FiNeX
  • bug #159884 - Kolab specific, only reproducible on one PC. Asked if it still happens. Lemma
  • bug #162195 Asked to the reporter to check an additional option. I'm not able to reproduce on trunk (if wordwrap is disabled). FiNeX
  • bug #162246 Probably the reporter did something wrong or, at least, it could be a mandriva problem. Anyway I've asked a couple of things to the reporter. FiNeX
  • bug #162246 Asked the reporter for more information. Difficult to reproduce without any additional information. lytenyn
  • bug #160724 - KMail confusing mails in folders with many messages. Reported on KDE3, maybe it's gone. Asked. Lemma
  • bug #160831 - The reporter says most of his filters stopped working in 1.9.6. I asked them if they work again as I don't know what else to do. Lemma
  • bug #160968 - Too many open files on searching through IMAP folder. I can't reproduce but I asked the reporter just to make sure. Lemma
  • bug #160983 - crash on filtering online imap mail. not reproducible for me but it might only turn up sporadically. Lemma
  • bug #163034 smtp send gets a server response which fails to recognize the sender. Cannot send email - seems to be a local problem. Asked for additional information lytenyn
  • bug #146453 Crash. I can't find duplicates. Difficult to reproduce. Asking information to the reporter Dario_Andres
  • bug #163268 - local unsubscribe info is not persisted quickly enough - is half a year old, we have a commit to alleviate the problem. Asked whether this has happened again lytenyn
