When kmail is started up, it opens the same message window hundreds of times and is unusable. It will keep opening this window until the app is killed. Is there some place I can reset the data or erase the offending email or reset kmail itself? Is there some other procedure I can use to stop this behavior?
I couldn’t find the directory you specified, but it did give me a clue. I found ~/.local/kmail2/autosave and deleted the contents of that directory. ****** and vacuumed akonadi and now everything seems ok. Thanks.
My mistake. It should have been ~/.local/share/kmail2/autosave/. This had 196 files all created at almost the same time. After eliminating them, no more have been created and things seem to be working normally. I did this before karlmistelberger suggested to remove the session file. I don’t know whether that would have worked or not, but I certainly appreciate the suggestion.
