...  FWIW, that's $KDEHOME/share/config/kmailrc (where $KDEHOME defaults 
to ~/.kde as shipped, if the var's unset, tho some distributions change 
that to ~/.kde4 or the like).

Check permissions on that.  Here, I have 0600, which is read/write for 
user only.  Also, while you're in that dir, try a quick "touch testfile" 
or the like (that'd be in a terminal window, or just try saving another 
file there).  Maybe the filesystem is damaged and got remounted read-only 
or some such.  Perhaps you need to fsck it and remount read/write (or just 
reboot, that'll hopefully fix it).
