Hi

Since the last big KDE update late Jan (don't get me started) my nightly backups of mail have been writing "nothing".

After asking on the Bacula list, someone suggested that maybe the mail is written in a different place now (As opposed to
/home/ian/.local/share/.local-mail.directory/.ZTI.directory/Inbox/ for example)

and indeed that does seem to be the case ... folder last written 27 Jan.

But doing a disk search for new mails and/or folders produces nothing ...

And Google won't tell me either (unless I'm asking the wrong question).

Does anyone know where Kmail in its infinite wisdom has decided to store the emails now?
Or even how to persuade Kmail to tell me the filename of the message?.....

Thanks, Ian

strace may be helpful in finding out what it's doing while you wait for a better reply.
