   On the last remaining computer I am aware of/maintain with kmail
still being used - akonadi was running, mysqld was running, and
nepemonkey was running all with user privs - nothing I tried could
resurrect kmail to a working state - I googled, read fedora threads etc.

   It was being used under gnome - if that matters.

   The only way I found was to killall kontact; thunderbird &

   As an aside, I found a long time ago that it was important to be mail
client indifferent - they way I do that is to have a local imap server
running and always use that for any local mail store instead of the mail
clients native store - that way I only need to export/import the current
contact list - and start a new client initiate 2 accounts, 1 to the ISP
and one to the local imap server and we're 100% back in business.

  Hope you get your mail working again John ...
