Typically 'tmp' is empty but both 'cur' and 'new' are full of messages. How does kmail (or akonadi?) assign messages to 'cur' or 'new'? If it arbitrarily shifts messages from one to the other then my copying idea will likely result in numerous duplicate messages. > > > > I've tried the Kmail documentation but it doesn't seem to throw any light on this. > > It's the standard Maildir format. 'new' has unread messages, 'cur' has read messages. They will be moved between folders when you mark messages as read or unread. I use KMail only on my IMAP server and sync that to my machine using Offlineimap. But once on my harddrive, my scenario is the same as yours: read mail from one Maildir tree on several machines at the same time. My approach is to use the syncing solution called Unison. That way I can read and edit Mail on both machines, and unison detects all the changes in the file system, including mail that was moved from new to cur after it was read. As long as I don’t edit the same mail on both machines, Unison works perfectly with this. -- Gruß | Greetings | Qapla’ Bitte nichts von mir oder über mich auf einem sozialen Netzwerk hochladen.
