I guess I should. I wasn't sure if it was now
supposed to be like that.
heh, even if it was supposed to be that way, it would be a bad decision from
the user POV, and so a bug should be filed to revert the change (or make it

This I do not know. I haven't used akonadiconsole.
/me just wonders how someone can be so lucky not to meet akonadiconsole until
What I just did, however, was to manually create a trash folder, just
if my deleted emails would be in it, but it was empty. The trash folder I
created did not get the special trash-folder icon, so I suppose the system
doesn't consider it to be the real trash.
and in addition, the special properties are scanned only on startup ...
I will delete that one again before I go into akonadiconsole.
no need to do so
after starting akonadiconsole, go to the browser tab
rightclick the folder you want to use as trash, choose Folder Properties
go to Attributes tab, there you should have two lines (you can safely remove
any superfluous ones)
ENTITYDISPLAY=("Trash" "user-trash" "" ())
(note that I use "=" as a separator within email, but in reality these are two
columns in a table)
the first line specifies that this folder will work as the trash folder
the second one sets display name (i.e. not the on-disk name), the icon, and
... I don't remember what is the third string and it is not important :-)
the second line also corresponds to the settings on the General tab of that
dialogue, but these are not synchronised well, so I recommend to play just
with the Attributes tab
after making the changes, stop kmail then stop akonadiserver
on a next kmail start, the trash folder should work
- note that the actual bug may render the trash folder unusable anyways, the
steps above have worked for me for messing with system folder when correcting
localisation issues etc.
