Hi Lisi,

Your filters are stored in ~/.kde3/share/config/kmailrc, so you should
save a copy of this file first.
However, filters you set up must have a "filter action", and there is
no "delete" action (I suppose you could "Execute command" and
"delete",  but I never tried this).

If you use a spam filter, check what it does with "spam" (but here it
sends them to trash, so I can still check there).

If you get your mail from pop3, you can switch on "leave fetched
messages on the server" and check they are there through webmail. I've
had mails lost in the past, I'm pretty sure it happened at my provider
but they never solved the issue (I had to get them sent to gmail). I
actually must write mails to this list from gmail,  mails to trinity
from kmail get lost too....

Last suggestion, you could setup another mail program (Thunderbird or
so) and check if your mails only disappear in kmail.

So far for my ideas for the moment....

Hope that helps,


Thierry
