Well, that was a disaster. I've now lost two whole days of e-mails. Postgres
seemed to be faster than MySql, but at what cost!
I lost yesterday's mails because KMail decided it would save my daily archive
under my home directory instead of in a separate partition mounted below
there. So when I removed my home directory and created a new one, again, the
archive was lost. One day down.
Today I had some more new mails waiting to be read, but I did something else
first on another desktop and when I came back to KMail I watched in horror as
it proceeded to delete all my folders and messages. Another day's mails lost.
I wish I could work out what is different about my setup - or even make a wild
guess. If more people suffered as I do, something would be done about it
If anyone has sent me anything in the last two days, please send it again.
