Kmail issue

Postby colyn on Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:44 am

I just came back to kmail from thunderbird but am having an issue I can't find a fix for.

Even when closed kmail checks and downloads messages. There is no link in the sys tray to stop this nor am I able to find any way in kmail.

Can this be stopped? I only want to download messages when kmail is open..

Assuming you're use POP3, go back to where you set up your account receiving and look for > Enable interval mail checking and uncheck it.

I hope that info is still correct but I no longer use Kmail since the KDE folks hooked in akonadi, nepomuk, strigi, and kwallet into what was once the best email client for Linux.

Actually I want it to check mail at intervals when I have kmail open but not when it is closed. At one time you could disable mail checking when kmail was closed but that option is no longer in the sys tray.
