           Summary: Kmail downloads all messages each time its started
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Fedora RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: IMAP
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: Kanwar.Plaha at gmail.com

Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.0) 
OS:                Linux

Each time I start kmail, I have to wait for a long time before I can start
reading my emails. It starts downloading all messages again. However, after
downloading, if I double-click on one message to read, it downloads the message
all over again!

If I cancel the above operation, i cannot read any message. Clicking on 'check
mail in ...' starts the above download once again.

Why does it do that? How can I avoid it? I use it for my work email.

My email server is IMAP (MS Exchange).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Start Kmail. Click on 'Cbeck Mail in ...' and choose the IMAP receiving account

Actual Results:  
Kmail starts downloading all messages again. This takes a long time.

Expected Results:  
Once the folder has been synchronized with the remote server, it should only
download new and unread messages next time.
