    Default KMail won't send: Invalid D-bus reply from mailfilteragent

    Kmail has stopped reliably sending emails. After a long delay, I get a mail not sent message with the error message being "invalid D-bus reply from mailfilteragent". I have no idea as to what is going wrong and can find no reference to this in the forums or Google. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks.

    Actually, a Google search on your error returns plenty of hits... but not all of them match your situation that well.

    Although very old, the following contains a number of things you can try from restarting the Akonadi service to re-installing the KDE-PIM modules to checking and possibly clearing out various folders...

    Don't see this on 15.0, 15.1 and Tumbleweed. Which makes me wonder which repos are involved. Please show:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Most of the directories mentioned are no longer relevant. Akonadictl restart allows the email to be sent, but then the problem recurs.

    What I would do in your case is:
    - (temporarily) disable all the home:/ repos ( I don't use any but my own )
    - Run
    Code:
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper dup

    Thanks, I'll try it. It turns out I only had one home:/ directory enabled and that was to get a copy of pipelight, a close of silverlight. I notice that it did replace some other packages. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
