22 I did as you suggested and the difference is that the numbering of the
23 messages on the server are now reversed; i.e. the more recent messages are
24 numbered from 1,2,3,...,165. The last message I sent after the moving of
25 messages and uploading them back onto the server is numbered correctly, i.e.
26 166.
28 Anyway, I noticed this sequence of steps when sending a message:
30 1. I click Send. Message is delivered to sender and shown in the Kmail imap
31 sent folder. So far, so good.
32 2. I click on Check Mail. The previous error message comes up about message
33 deleted on server and do I want to delete it locally. Checking the webmail
34 sent folder list shows that the recently sent message is there.
35 3. Accepting the error message to delete the sent message locally clears it
36 out of the Kmail IMAP sent folder. Checking the webmail gui shows me that
37 the sent message is actually still there. I has not been deleted from the
38 server.
39 4. I click on Check Mail again. Now the recently sent message is downloaded
40 from the server into the Kmail imap sent folder.
42 I guess this behaviour is similar to the previous Kmail version, except of the
43 error message for a deleted message on the server. Can anyone make sense out
44 of this?
