I got myself out of it by using brute force. It seemed the only way.
I first archived all my folders separately, then removed my user directory from
under /home, created a new one, copied in all my non-KDE stuff and set up my
new KDE user from scratch. Then I imported all the archives again, and all the
24 filters. Finally I let KMail start fetching new e-mails.
The process has taken over six hours so far.
Now I have e-mails being duplicated in the folder containing this list while I
watch, and KMail is telling me I have one unread e-mail in my inbox - but I
Have I to go through the whole process again? Is no-one else suffering like
Incidentally, not one of the filters had the right destination folder; I had to
set them all again. I've also found that Important marks on e-mails don't
survive recovery from archive.
When is KMail2 going to become reliable for simple POP3 e-mails? I don't want
desktop indexing, nor PIM functions, nor complex multi-machine
synchronisation, nor corporate fanciness - just simple, reliable, plain-text
e-mails. That's not too much to ask, is it?
Is it too late to revert to KMail-1?
