I have finally gotten kmail2 to run on my Fedora 15 machine. I ended up using
an entirely different mail directory. I was able to import the mail from the
old directories into new versions. But I do have one annoying problem. My
mail is delivered directly to the machine, and spooled to /var/mail/user-id.
kmail was configured to go check the spool periodically, move the mail into my
inbox, and delete the mail from the spool. I haven't found a way to get
kmail2 to do this. Currently I have added the spool as another mailbox, and
when mail shows up, I manually move it, and then manually run a script to
delete it from the spool. How do I setup kmail2 to do the previous behavior?
This turned out to not be a kmail2 problem at all, but was a SELinux problem. I had
apparently turned off
being notified of procmail AVCs, and procmail was being prevented from delivering the
mail. I logged into
a console instead of a gui while a set of Fedora update notices was being delivered, and
the terminal was
flooded with procmail AVC messages (which later were not in audit.log). After relabeling
the mail directories
as a type that procmail can write to, now mail is being delivered as it should.
