[PATCH] Add dontAskAgainName parameter to queuedMessageBox()

Having a dialog like the one you propose allows a user to get a lot of
dialog on screen when he walks away and the mailbox is and stays out
of sync due to him not clicking the dialog.

The correct patch would be to fix this in KMail. For example by adding
a check in front of the code that accesses the mailbox-cache.
Another solution is that each incoming acount has a 'ok to use' flag
so a problem in one does not effect another account. Plus you can easily
disable the account when a problem is found.

Anyway; your proposal does not look like it embraces good design in KMail.
