Can’t delete my file in KMail

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Experts,

I’m new with Kmail and just follow some of its default settings. I had no problem when it comes in uploading and downloading file but suddenly when it comes to deleting mail from the server gives an error. Please give me an idea on how I can handle this error. Thanks in advance.

Problem encounter:


Sorry – KMail
Your POP3 server(Account: does not support the UIDL command: this
command is required to determine, in a reliable way, which of the mails on the server
KMail has already seen before;
the feature to leave the mails on the server will therefore not work properly.

Can’t delete my file in KMail


Hello Petter,

That could be a problem resulting possibly from how the POP3 settings of the KMail server have been set. It seems like the way you have configured the KMail server, the settings in some way do not allow the mails to be deleted from the server, nor does it support the mails to be left of the server.

It seems like you have set it such that when the messages are received they are transferred to a different point or location. Therefore you will need to check the POP3 settings and change them accordingly.

Hope this helps.
