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.
