    Not unless you've configured that as a storage location for a maildir or mbox resource.

    The default path for the first maildir resource is $XDG_DATA_HOME/local-mail.

    Migrated older setups can have KMail's storage "mounted" via a special KMail resource. The path can vary depending on the KMail version that originally created the directory, e.g. $HOME/Mail, $HOME/.Mail, $KDEHOME/share/apps/kmail/mail, etc.

    Yes it can. Both the maildir as well as the kmail compatibilty resource (mixedmaildir) support folder trees..

      There are a couple of commandline interfaces for Nepomuk, e.g. nepomuksearch.

      A project for a commandline interface to Akonadi exists in early stages:
      https://projects.kde.org/projects/pl.../akonadiclient

      There is a Google Summer of Code proposal/idea to extend on that http://community.kde.org/GSoC/2014/I...ting_Interface

        Yeah, I am sure most users would love to spend an hour waiting for grep to scan through gigabytes of files. And how, exactly, do you expect to use grep on a binary word processor document or image metadata? The point of modern search programs is that they use a index so you don't need to scan each file line-by-line one-at-a-time.

        • KDE is a community. Plasma workspaces is a desktop environment implemented by KDE, but it is not the same thing as KDE.

            Since when KDE doesn't mean K Desktop Environment ? <__<

                Quite the opposite. I'm saying it was defined in the 80s, and hasn't changed. Again, my analogies are perfect, and you continue to reinforce them. Trains, planes, and automobiles. Three distinct modes of transportation that will never replace each other. Each with it's own use, purpose, and user interface. If MS were to make a train or aircraft, it would have a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, turn signal, and break pedal, and release it under the guise of UI convergence. Pilots and engineers would be infuriated and bewildered in the same manner as Metro Desktop users.

                We're in the 'post rail' era, yet trains aren't going anywhere and continue to evolve independently of the other options. We're in the 'Post Automobile' era because we have taken flight, yet automobiles continue to evolve independently of aircraft. We're in the 'post PC' era, but that doesn't mean that the PC is done, and that there needs to be some convergence for the sake of convergence.

                I'm loving the trolling BTW. Pretty awesome. I love how you argue my point for me, feign ignorance, and pretend to not know what a PC is. That's pretty cool. Alternatively, you might just be a UI developer at MS/Canonical and have imbibed from the kool-aid fountain of incompetence.

                  Since ~2-3 years, they changed the naming because I got no idea why. From then "KDE" means the people behind KDE Community, and the desktop is called "KDE SC" (software compilation). Though I have yet to find anyone who doesn't call the desktop just "KDE" like in the old days.

                    As far as I understand mostly because they realised that it didn't make any sense anymore to refer to every single product of their portfolio with the same name.
                    Much like Adobe is now the name of the company, its products being Photoshop, etc. and them having a "bundle" called Creative Suite.

                    In both cases the name of the original product has now become the name of the vendor, each product usually being referred to by a combination of vendor name and product name, e.g. Adobe Photoshop, KDE Kontact.

                    No, KDE Software Compilation refers to the "bundle", the combination of a large portion of the KDE product portfolio. Like on the example of Adobe the Adobe Creative Suite.
                    The desktop is called "Plasma Desktop" or with the vendor name prefixed as "KDE Plasma Desktop".

                    Actually pretty easy and consistent once one realises that the same concept is widely used by basically all vendors with a wide product range.

                      Actually there might be more trains today in most region than during when the train had the biggest market share among transportation means. The fact that cars and truck have become ubiquitous and gained most of the market share does not mean that the train in itself is any less used.
                      I worded my responses carefully so as to avoid people inferring just what you did.
                      In large metro areas trains are still heavily used (well, in the northeast at any rate) but pretty much everywhere else cars have just utterly supplanted trains as the primary people mover.
