In kde3 and kde4, I did not NEED kwallet. The passwords were stored in kmail 
itself. Newer kmail version ask for it every time.

Now I do not mind entering them once on start, but everytime I get an network 
connection expiry (as of yet found no fix to that!!) so reconnects, I have to 
enter them once again. It can go quite a while without or I can have this 
every few minutes which makes this a giant  pain in the ...

I tried redoing the mail accounts, got the "kwallet not active" dialog, 
regardless of the status shown on the manager, et al.
