New submission from Thomas Arendsen Hein <thomas at intevation.de>:

Version 1.2.4 (enterprise 20080201.769476)
KDE personal information manager
(C) 2001-2004 The Kontact developers

Right-click on dIMAP-Account -> Subscriptions ... -> OK
yields a dialog:
"Currently subscriptions are not used for server Kolab Server
do you want to enable subscriptions?
[Enable] [Do Not Enable] [Cancel]"

1. What's the difference between [Do Not Enable] and [Cancel]?
2. The text isn't helpful for me as there is no indication that this modifies
"Settings -> Configure Kontact -> E-Mail -> Accounts -> Kolab Server -> Show
only subscribed folders" (the toggle button description is helpful!)

I suggest something like the following:

Currently unsubscribed folders are not hidden, should the account setting
"Show only subscribed folders" be enabled?
[Enable] [Do Not Enable]

Or 'option' instead of 'setting'?
Or 'to show only subscribed folders' instead of '"Show only subscribed
folders"'? (though the version with "" might be more friendly for translations)
