kmail local folders on another partition fails

Postby Legolas1309 » 2018-12-01 23:37

- What I am looking for: My Debian9 system is on /dev/sda5 (SSD), while all my data (including emails) are stored on a harddisk /dev/sdb1/mydata/mail/.
- What was running successfuly: In Deb8.2 (kde 4.1.4.2; kmail 4.1.4.1 ) it was easy. Local email folders were in /home/Legolas/kde/share/apps/kmail/mail. I created a link, called "mail" and pointing to /dev/sdb1/mydata/mail/ . Running perfectly.
- What fails now: In Deb 9 (kmail 5.2.3; kde 5.2.3) local emails are in a folder called /home/Legolas/.local/.share/akonadi_maildir_resource_0/mail/. Now, I tried the same procedure: Erase the folder akonadi_maildir_resource_0 and create a link with the same name. The problem: As soon as I restart kmail, the folder akonadi_maildir_resource_0 is recreated (by kmail ? by akonadi ? dont know) and kmail prefers to work with the folder instead of working with the link. So kmail cannot see my local folders.
- My question: What to do ? Am I the only one having this trouble, which would surprise me ? Is there another solution possible than the link ?
- Somewhere I read to choose location of local email folder in akonadi config, but up to now I didnot find how to config akonadi server.
- btw: I posted this subject already in kde-forum https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=215&t=156151 but got no answer.
Thanks for support.
