I used to have kontact and kmail that came with kde 3.5.9. I'm sure that
there was an option to turn on/off automatic periodic compaction for all
I have just upgraded to kde 4.2.4. Kmail now hangs for long periods of time
and chews through 100% CPU. I can only suspect it was doing compaction. It
seemed to be doing it several times a day.
I have a lot of folders with a lot of email so this process was
taking a lot of time and chewing through most of my computer's resources. At
one point the kmail process got to 6 GB of memory used and I wasn't able to do
much else with the computer.
I cannot find a way to turn off automatic compaction with this new version -
so I have set "Compactable=false" for all my folders in the kmailrc file.
This seems to have fixed the issue of kmail using 100% CPU for long periods of
time. But now I am unable to compact folders even manually.
How can I get manual operating but not automatic? Or even better, automatic
only to operate on a few select folders (i.e. the ones I use most)?
I'm using kontact, kmail etc from the 4.2.4 release for openSUSE 11.0.
