New submission from Torsten Irländer <torsten.irlaender at intevation.de>:
Before syncing messages up to the server kontact checks its mails if they are
ghost messages. If kontact found such ghost messages the user get informed
about that by showing a dialog window. I attached a screen shot of this dialog.
There are two points which should be improved:
1. The error message and the title of this dialog. The whole dialog can be
improved by giving the user more neutral information. Maybe we simply say that
corrupted mal was found, give some possible reasons why this can happen (crash
etc.), and explain what the user can do next (rebuild index, delete mail etc.).
Finally we might give a hint to the user to report this error to the system
administration. Additionally the should replace the termn "ghost-message" into
something different. Maybe simply into "corrupted-mail"
2. Are there any reason why not deleting this messages? The only reason I can
imagine is to give the user a chance to rebuild the index or refresh the cache.
But maybe we do not need to give the option at all but delete them directly?
