New Maintainer wanted!
I'm looking for a new maintainer for this project because I'm not able to attend it anymore. Please Help!

KShowmail is a POP3 mail checker for the KDE with these features: show number, size and more information about mails on pop3 servers in a list view, show the mail headers or complete mails, delete unwanted mail from server by configurable filters.

New version 4.1 released.


- dutch and norwegian translation reply function in show mail dialog
- log shows manually deleted mails in the mail view and in the log view a tooltip shows the filter which has catched the mail
- You can set up an action for a double click on a mail list entry
- mail list: an icon in front of the sender shows whether the sender is listed on the whitelist
- Bugfix: KShowmail has crashed while showing an empty mail.
- You can export and import the filter settings
- handbook was written by Otmar Mak (english and german) and our translators have translated it into spanish, italien and dutch
- Some providers need the sequence \r\n at the end of a transmission
- The column order of the views will be saved.

Bug fixed: KShowmail has chrashed when it deleting mails.

First release for KDE 4!

- Spanish translation
- Bugfix: The mail list was not correctly synchronized after a deletion which was performed by the filter.

- Revised filter (dialog and worker)
* White- and Blacklist
* indefinite number of filters
* moving of mails into mailboxes
* ignoring of mails (e.g. for mailing lists)
- Spam check with SpamAssassin (just basically)
- Revised filter log unstable
-SSL/TLS support

- Fixed bug where if you configure 2 accounts, retrieve mail, and then deactivate one of the accounts, it's number of messages still reflects in the tray icon.
- Fixed sort of message number and size columns in message list to be numerical rather than alpha.
- Corrected version displayed in the About dialog.

 install on kubuntu 8.10 ????

i've installed kubuntu 8.10 and i cannot get kshowmail to work...

when i've tried to compile, i got several dependencies problems.
After having installed a bunch of -dev packages, i still get stuck with the following one:

"checking for headers /usr/include/kde/mimelib/mimepp.h and /usr/include/kde/mimelib/datetime.h...
configure: error: Headers /usr/include/kde/mimelib/mimepp.h or /usr/include/kde/mimelib/datetime.h not found.
Please install kdepim devel package.

installing this kdepim package doesn't change anything. using apt-file, impossible to find any package containing mimepp.h or mimelib/datetime.h

I also tried to convert a rpm using alien. Conversion goes fine, i've got my .deb that i can install using dpkg.
However, when i launch kshowmail, i get the following:
"kshowmail: error while loading shared libraries: libmimelib.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory."

apt-file cannot find it. Google tells me it's in a package called libmimelib1c2a.
Problem : the package libmimelib1c2a no longer exists in intrepid...

Any idea how to do then ?
Is a new version using qt4 and kde4 librairies only planned in a near future ?

You have to install the Devel-Package of kdepim. In this are the header files which the compiler need to work.

Of course I plan a KShowmail 4.0 for KDE4. But I have just few time and KDevelop4 (my favorite development tools) is not ready for work yet. Please be patient.

Great news that a kde 4 version is on the way. It works fine with kde 4.2 opensuse using the kde 3.5 libaries by the way.

 Debian (SID) Package

Here is a package for Debian (Unstable), made under and only tested with "sidux"


for kde 3.5.10. It's not a "checkinstall" gimmick, but made with the debian package build system elaboratively. Should work with (K)ubuntu too.

Pick it up here:

Dear Ulrich!
KDE4 already came on our desktops and notebooks and I think it came forever... :)
You are our hope and we wait for new version of KShowmail. Excuse me and my colleagues for this reminding, but your application is very needed for our work. Thank you.

I too am eager to hear news about KDE4. My main system is PCLinuxOS and the lack of kshowmail is the only reason that has prevented me from switching from KDE3 to KDE4.
That goes also as a thanks to the creator of this marvelous app.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
