           Summary: Automatic folder creation for roaming
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: spillner kde org

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

As a nomad I usually take some configuration files with me when moving from one computer to another. Obviously, I cannot take the kmail folders with me. The result is that all local kmail filters are properly set up on the new computer but the filtering doesn't work because the folders don't exist on it.

I suggest going through all of the filters and creating the folders structure automatically if needed. This matches the expectation of users from online mail access (e.g. webmail or IMAP) and will make roaming easier.

In general kmailrc should be cleaned up a bit so it becomes more suitable. For example, "[General]::Default domain" should not be stored unless the user explicitly wants to override $HOSTNAME. "UnreadMsgs" is similarly useless in a new environment, this should go to some cache file.
