            Bug ID: 330261
           Summary: New Message from Template only uses default identity
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: kmail2
           Version: 4.11.3
          Platform: Debian unstable
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: UI
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: semenukha+kdebugs at gmail.com

The submenu under File -> New… -> Message from template only lists templates
from default identity. In default configuration this is the folder "KMail
If you configure your default identity's template folder to be any other
folder, its contents will be listed in the said submenu (correct).
If you configure your non-default identity's template folder to be any other
folder, its contents will sometimes (see below) be ignored, even if you're
currently using that identity (e.g. Ctrl+N will correctly compose a message
using that identity).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two identities: Work and Home. Make Home identity default.
2. Create two folders: Work/Templates and Home/Templates.
3. Configure each folder from step 2 to be the template folder of the
respective identity. Use Settings -> Configure Kmail -> Identities -> [each
identity] -> Modify -> Advanced -> Templates folder: [this identity]/Templates.
4. Create two messages: WorkMessage in Work/Templates and HomeMessage in
5. Optionally restart KMail.
6. Open File -> New -> Message from template.
Actual Results:  
Submenu will be empty in most cases.

Expected Results:  
1. Submenu must contain the command "WorkMessage" if Work identity is active
and "HomeMessage" if Home is active.
2. Submenu must contain both commands "WorkMessage" and "HomeMessage".

The app will show the expected result #1, if you select the identity root
folder (e.g. Work or Home) in the folder tree view.
However, if you select any subfolder (e.g. Home/Inbox), it will only list
"HomeMessage". If you select Work/Inbox, it will be empty.
