Kmail Syncing Folders Then Closes


I can’t seem to get Kmail to stay open. I start it, it says it is downloading e-mails, then it closes and I get a KDE error message. The message says “Sorry Kontact has closed unexpectedly.” You can help us improve…" Now I have a lot of e-mails that it is trying to download, approximately 840. The status bar gets to about 91% filtering emails. While it is downloading, I can see that it has some new e-mails and if I click on one, it says “Retrieving Folder Contents…please wait”. What can I try to do to keep it running? Or what other information do you require from me to go further?


So you are going to have to tell us more:

  1. openSUSE Version (11.4, 12.1) and if 32 or 64 bit?
  2. KDE desktop version 4.7 (default) or 4.8 (or even 4.9) depending on openSUSE version?
  3. Have you used any other email programs (like Thunderbird)?

Thank You,
