           Summary: search asks whether I want to download all messages for
                    each folder
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian stable
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: ovit.debian gmail com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Debian stable Packages

Reported in Debian BTS at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=384865


If I try to perform a slightly more complicated search (say, do regexp
matching for the Subject header) over IMAP, I get the following message:

    "To execute your search all messages of the folder xxx have to
     be downloaded from the server. This may take some time. Do you
     want to continue your search?

     [ ] Do not ask again

     [Search] [Cancel]"

Ok, this was unexpected, I do not want to wait for kmail to download
all messages in all folders this time. I just hit "cancel" and expect
it to stop.

However, it does _not_ stop searching, it simply skips to the next
folder. It asks the same question again, I hit "cancel" again, and so
on. Finally, I figure out a way to kill kmail as I do not have
patience to say "cancel" for all folders.

Naturally, checking "do not ask again" does not help if I hit
"cancel"; it simply keeps asking again.

Best regards,
