           Summary: Using DIMAP on network shares causes dataloss
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: cajus naasa net

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
Compiler:          g++ (GCC) 4.1.3 20070718 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.2-14) 
OS:                Linux

If you have your home directory on a network share (i.e. NFS, AFS, etc.) and the network connection is down (or the share is not available for other reasons), KMAIL starts to delete folders from the IMAP server in DIMAP mode. Shared folders with write permission and personal folders are affected.
Mails not captured by a backup or other client are lost.
