Bug ID: 363976
Summary: kmail moans 'die ressource "XXXX" funktioniert nicht'
because subdirectories tmp, new and cur are missing
Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
Reporter: dieter.jurzitza at t-online.de
I struggled for quite a while analyzing a silly bug. Kmail2 worked but always
'Die Ressource "XXXX" funktioniert nicht'
on start and on entering arbitrary subfolders of XXXX (say
/var/spool/mail/oscar) because I am using maildir format.
At the end of the day it showed that this message (not very helpful, indeed)
was caused by the fact that subdirectories were missing.
So, there was a directory "trash", but the directories "trash/new", "trash/cur"
and "trash/tmp" were missing. Why aren't they auto - generated - I cannot
imagine anything harmful from them, but an error message (that actually does
not give a pointer to the problem) is misleading and serves for nothing in this
So, I'd suggest to auto-generate those folders if they are missing - and kmail
ought to know what is actually causing the error message so it should be
possible to add the folders at the right position.
Thank you for looking into this
Error message "Die resource XXXX funktioniert nicht" though it works.
Auto - generation of missing subdirectories tmp, cur, new.
