I am having asome difficulties with using Kmail inside of Kontact. Since upgrading to Leap 15.0, no messages are displaying, either as an opened mail, or in the preview pane. The original message I sent to the developers are as follows:
-- Message --
I hope that you can help me.
I have recently upgraded my system to Leap 15.0, running Kontact Version 5.7.3.
Not one of my emails display any text in the preview pane - something I use most. I have updated all my system packages, QT5, and xcb packages to the latest, using the official repos, as well as from PackMan - and still no text. There is also no text displayed in an “opened” email message, although when viewing the source, the text does appear to have been downloaded - in other words, it is there, but not displayed.
I am also not able to send any mail via Kmail/Kontact, as I get a "wrong version number" error.
I do not see a ready workaround anywhere on the threads. Is there something I missed here?
I am aiming to do an online upgrade to Leap 15.1 soon, but I don't want to risk doing so if there are still bugs on the system this side, or is that the actual fix?
Please help - this is a component I use a couple of times a day - and at the moment, it is useless.
Please give me some advice - I am rather desperate!

The only answer I got back from Cornelius Schumacher was two email addresses - hopefully someone here can help!

tumbleweed is up to kontact 5.11.1, and after switching from mysql to pgsql,
it has very few problems. notably, if the imap connection times out, i have to
go offline and go online again to get it to reconnect. this is minor compared
to what i remember from leap.
