I managed the uinstability by doing on each folder "delete duplicates"
and then "compress folder".
By doing so, kmail crashes on folders with corrupted indexes.
I figured out that only two indexes where corrupted: debian-user-german
That way I could retain all marks and meta Informations like staus
informations 'read' or 'unread' for the 'good' folders.
Also the startup of kmail without some indexes last very long, therefor
someone could think it crashed again. This way I could limited the
number of indexes to rebuild on kmail startup.
I vote for your suggestion, Derek, to let kmail itself figure out which
folder has a corrupted index on startup, and if possible a feature
which retains the metainfo also for corrupted indexes (I miss now my
marks for messages marked as important). At least a button to initiate
such operation manually.
