FAQ

Where is my local mail stored?

In KDE4, check the setting:

cat ~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc | grep folders

Check the 'Path' setting in:
~/.kde4/share/config/akonadi_maildir_resource_0rc

kmail stops filtering incoming emails

Try:

$ akonadictl fsck
$ akonadictl vacuum
$ akonadictl restart

If you can't seem to delete/move messages in a specific folder, go to akonadiconsole -> Browser -> right click the folder and clear cache, then restart akonadi.
