As far as I can tell, there is no path information anywhere in the Kmail 
application.  I must confess that I have'nt a clue where the path 
information lives.  I'll have to find out !

Ah SD Cards.  Now that I must agree with you.  I've had numerous 
problems with data corruption on those.  Same with CF cards.  Mainly 
transfering pictures to and from my camera.

I don't know at the moment !  One install was on Christmas day so its 
doubtfull that its even been played with yet.  The other is on a 
machine somewhere in Scotland so I won't see the guy until they come 
back and thats not going to be until after hogmanay.

So far I've not had any further problems.

One thing I have noticed and I don't know if its at the list end but I 
see two copies of my Email to the list.  One with and one without the 
footer that is normally added.  Both copies have the same date and time 
but different sizes.  Obiously due to the added footer.

Oh, got to go dinner has been called...
