Thread: KMail - Many empty mail profiles

    Default KMail - Many empty mail profiles

    Hello.
    After installation Kontact I created mail profiles. After a while I noticed that empty profiles appeared in the list of mail profiles.
    Over time, their number increases.
    Now there are more than 5000. And all the setting operations for KMail are very long.
    Manually deleting it is unrealistic, since you can only delete one record at a time and the deletion takes a long time (a few seconds).
    Tell me please, where the mail profiles in KMail2 are stored and how to solve my problem with empty profiles?

    Thanks.

    Hi, welcome

    This describes something completely new to me. How did you setup accounts in kmail? Do you by any chance have a local mailserver running?

    I do not have a mail server on my computer. There is a postfix server in my local network and my KMail has an account for it.
    Kmail profiles created in the usual way: in Kmail - Menu settings → Configure KMail ...

    MMm, if it's all IMAP, I'd start all over:
    Code:
    akonadictl stop
    rm -rf ~/.config/kmail*
    rm -rf ~/.local/share/kmail*
    akonaictl start
    And reconfigure the accounts.

    I can try. But I have six mailboxes set up. And also a lot of letters, folders and filtering rules. Can I keep it?

    Do you mean "Identities"?
    • The KDE Kontact PIM suite doesn't have the concept of "profiles" …
    • When I begin a new e-Mail, I only have the choice of "Which identity?" …

    Do you have a rogue script running somewhere?
    Within the KDE System Settings module dealing with "Startup and Shutdown" do you have anything being started at login and/or logout time?

    Despite the pain, this may be the only way to reliably clean up the KDE Kontact PIM system given, the amount of relationships within the PIM system …

    Please try the following housekeeping:
    1. Quit the KDE Kontact window.
    2. From a Konsole Terminal execute "akonadictl fsck" and then "akonadictl vacuum".
    3. Stop Akonadi: "akonadictl stop"
    4. Execute the Bash script below to check for extraneous empty 'cur/', 'new/' and 'tmp/' directories in the "~/.local/share/" directories -- remove them if any are found …
    5. Restart the KDE Kontact window.

    Code:
    for j in cur new tmp ; do
      for i in cur new tmp ; do
        find ~/.local/share/ -type d -path '*'$i/$j -print
      done
    done

    The user's KMail Identities are stored in the file "~/.config/emailidentities".
    The e-Mail Transports associated with the various Identities are stored in the file "~/.config/mailtransports".
    The rest of the data required for the e-Mail Transports is located in the "~/.config/" files named "agent_config_akonadi_???_resource_??".
