    Unhappy Kmail, sending incoming mail to trash

    Hi
    i have last kmail and kde 4.2
    how come it's sending incoming email to trash, directly ?
    i had spamassassin working ok
    i only did some # zypper up

    i erased /kde4/share/apps/kmail
    and now spanassasin icons are grey, and the spamd (daemon) in yast is desactived but i tried after that and my mail keeps being trashed ....

    What's going on ?

    Thanks

    i did erase the hidden file before posting here, it does not change anything

    i'm not supposed to have any filter on, how can i check this ?

    i had spam assassin on and it did work ok before some updates (#zypper up)
    i did not change anything special in kmail

    Filters are in Settings > Configure Filters.

    Also check Settings > Configure Kmail > Accounts > Modify > Advanced > destination folder should = inbox or similar

    Happened to me as well. Don't know what happened during one of the updates and why, but I fixed it by

    1. Install spamassassin (I swear I had it installed before, no idea why it was uninstalled)
    2. Run the spam wizard and select the spamassassin

    That's it. Everything's working well now.

    Hi guys,
    in message #5 above : i checked and this is ok
    in #6 : zypper tells me spam assassin is already installed and thus i can't install nor upgrade it
