            Bug ID: 378439
           Summary: KMail - search is "one-shot" only
           Product: kmail2
           Version: 5.3.0
          Platform: openSUSE RPMs
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: search
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: bugrprt21882 at online.de
  Target Milestone: ---

openSUSE Leap 42.2 -- plasma5-workspace: 5.8.6-8.1 (LTS)
Linux (x86_64) release 4.4.57-18.3-default
KMail: Version 5.3.0 (QtWebEngine)
   - KDE Frameworks 5.26.0
   - Qt 5.6.1 (compiled against 5.6.1)
   - The xcb window system

Provided that, the "Search" folder does not exist, the Tools menu "Find
messages" function ("S") executes as expected.

Subsequent searches do not execute as expected:
 - The result of the initial "Find messages" execution remains unchanged.

If, by means of "right-click" on the Search results folder, the last search
results are cleared (need to first click on other mail folder before the option
to delete changes from "Delete folder" to "Delete search") -- after noticing
the message indicating that, the original searched for and found e-Mails will
remain at their original location, the original e-Mails are no longer displayed
in the original folder view.

Closing down KMail and then restarting it, restores the display of the
"searched for and found" e-Mails in their respective Mail folders and, a new
"Find messages" search can be executed.


The URL for the relevant KMail Handbook entry is:
(It doesn't mention that, the Search folder has to be deleted and, that KMail
has to be closed down and then restarted.)
