The email, to which this is a reply, had been sitting there waiting to
be sent, and I clicked send a little too automatically just now.  I
actually wrote it many hours ago and I have since tried to open KMail.

Although it is clearly finding the right folder, it is not opening.  I
get the following error message:

Problem with mail indices - KMail

There is a problem with the mail index of the following folders, the
indices will now be regenerated.

This can happen because the index files are out of date, missing or corrupted.

Contact your administrator if this happens frequently.

Some information, like status flags might get lost.


Since both Werner (on a previous occasion) and every reference I
followed up in Google said that indices could be removed and would
regenerate, I have been trying to delete them and get KMail to
regenerate them.  I have used Werner's

rm -rf *.index

command - several times , for good measure.  I have been through my
Debian, inbox, SouthWalesLUG and Shopping folders individually.  I am
now going manually through everything.  I know that there were index
files, but have not so far found a single one on my manual trawl.

This is ridiculous.  So near and yet so far...

Since indices are clearly the problem, one way or another, and
everyone seems to agree that indices can be deleted and will then
regenerate, this _must_ be soluble.

Has any of you helpful people any idea what I could try next?  (Apart
from finishing the very slow hand-trawl through.)
