To rephrase:
Works fine now, using KDE 3.5.10, release 21.9 on openSUSE 11.1 and pop 
account, but there was problem with some type of headers that prevented KMail 
to access message. With pop account it was show stopper, as no mails will be 
downloaded. With imap it can have different manifestation. 

I already looked around. This time searching bugs for KMail - IMAP there is 
(kind of) recent bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116372 

If setting account as 'disconnected imap' doesn't help, then we can focus on 
message header. Also, I would try to use different mail client to access same 
account, just to make sure it is KMail problem.
