Summary: Moving several mails from IMAP inbox to local maildir
creates entries with RemoteID NULL
Platform: Kubuntu Packages

3. Move them into some other folder by mouse left click and hold, moving them
mouse and dropping them into the target folder.
4. In akonadi, re-check via SELECT * FROM `pimitemtable` WHERE `remoteId` IS
The number of NULL entries increases by n-1, where n is the number of moved
Only one of the moved mails actually arrives in the target folder.
work around: moving only one mail at a time works fine.
All mails should be moved and no NULL entries created.
I will mark this as critical, as I already lost some mails. As soon as there is
a work around how to recover mails with NULL entries, the severity may be
