           Summary: E-Mails sometimes disappear in KMail/Kontact in IMAP
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.7
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: m.j.thayer googlemail com

Version:           1.9.7 (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

Sometimes when I select an unopened e-mail in my IMAP folder either it or another unopened e-mail disappears from KMail/Kontact's display.  I have to refresh once or twice to get it back.  This only happens with this particular IMAP account, but does not occur in Thunderbird.  I have been seeing this problem since KDE 3.3 or 3.4 (but formerly it occurred much more frequently).

In addition (I suspect that it is related, but I am not sure), when the mailbox is refreshed (I have interval checking set), the currently selected e-mail is not always remembered, but instead KMail switches to one further up the list.  Occasionally, all mails except the first few disappear in the inbox until I refresh once or twice.

And finally (related or not?), KMail shows the contents of my inbox when I select the drafts folder on the IMAP account, and shows the drafts folder as having new mail when new mail arrives.

Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.  If you can tell me where to look, I can also try getting Ubuntu's debug symbols and taking a look inside gdb.
