Please list all bugs found in the application below here. Remember to sign every comment you write on this wiki page with ~~~.

  • Crash when clicking on the "Inbox" folder of my IMAP account just after creating it with the first start wizard. Backtrace at Notice that the server uses Maildir, not mbox. After a restart of kmail it works now. Earthwings
  • The first start wizard seems to have added the SMTP server twice. Earthwings
  • Per default I don't get any new mail notification: kmail.notifyrc has Actions=None for new mail and the systray is not show per default. Earthwings
  • Clicking on the "Searches" folder brings up the standard "Welcome to kmail" widget. It would be nice if one would be directed to the "Find Messages" widget in some way. Earthwings
  • I think the "Search" button should be on top in the "Find Messages" widget, not the "Stop" button. Maybe both could even be the same button, they should be mutually disabled anyway? Earthwings
  • "Switch Application Language" is listed in the Help menu. I think it should be in Tools, if it should be there at all. Earthwings
    • FiNeX it is the default position for all KDE4 apps.
  • "Switch Application Language" should resize when adding a new fallback language, or start with a larger default size. Earthwings
    • This dialog comes from kdelibs -- TMG 18:39, 6 June 2008 (CEST)
  • Kleopatra Self Test Result shows a message with tags (para, application, icode) for the "GpGConf (Configuration) installation" item in the "Proposed Corrective Action" section. Earthwings
  • Kleopatra startup height is too small. Earthwings
  • Kleopatra fails to import my S/MIME X.509 Certificate: "An error occurred while trying to import the certificate /home/kde-devel/thawte.p12: Decryption failed". I can import that certificate in Thunderbird. Earthwings
  • I can select my OpenGPG key for encryption, but not for signing: It's not listed for selection. Kleopatra says it's fine for signing, and I use it in other applications for signing. Earthwings
  • "Check Messsages" does not seem to trigger the new messages event: The number of mails in the systray increases, but I don't get a popup. Clicking on a folder that has new messages (IMAP) triggers the event though. Earthwings
  • New message : View > All fields. Comboboxes don't show immediately. They show up on next "new message". -- gemegik
    • Already fixed. -- TMG 18:39, 6 June 2008 (CEST)
  • In custom searches, next/previous toolbar buttons not working. -- gemegik
  • Enabling the "out of office reply" through sieve (which my server does not support), I got some error messages (fine so far). Later I found kio_sieve in the process list, CPU usage 100% for some hours. Earthwings
  • Encoding problem in searches names in french (saved in utf8, displayed as iso-8859-15) -- gemegik
  • In message edition : "edit > remove quote characters" only works for the first line of a selection. -- gemegik
  • Menu item "help > about kmail" and "help > kmail introduction" change icon when hovering. Same for systray. -- gemegik
    • Can't reproduce -- TMG 18:39, 6 June 2008 (CEST)
  • Krop Settings/security/S-Mime tab is fully greyed even if gpgsm is detected
    • Krop Solved after installing gnupg2
  • Krop Chiasmus detection returns (when not detected) : The file /usr/local/bin/chiasmus doesn't exist or is not executable. Doesn't it look in all directories in $PATH ?
  • Right-click on a message from a ML -> "create filter" -> "filter on mailing list" is disabled. Right click on the message again, and the option appears. In the "Message" menu, the "filter on mailing list" option is never enabled, AFAICT. Philrod
  • After starting KMail, the text "Starting..." stays in the status bar indefinitely. Grundleborg
  • "Ham" and "Spam" toolbar buttons are enabled even when no emails are selected. Grundleborg
