    Kmail: filters, addresses


    I have a couple of questions about Kmail:

    1.What is the difference between these two dialogue
    boxes:
    configure filters
    configure pop filters

    I read the help file, but not understanding.

    One thing I want to do is have mail from a mailing list directed into a
    separate folder.

    2. question about address book:
    When I compose a new message and chose 'select' I get a number of
    entries in 'all'.
    Some of these are mistakes I made in typing. Is there a way to get rid
    of these entries?

    Thanks

    I don't use Kmail, but one set of filters is for imap mail and the other is for pop mail. You need to know which your webmail provider uses.

    I think ....
    configure filters is for filtering mail once it has been downloaded from the mail server, configure pop filters allows filtering of mail before download.

    in menu select settings->configure kmail ... then select composer then select edit recent addresses ... that should let you remove entries you don't want.

    Hope that helps
