As you may see, it is functioning now. Do not ask me how, I do not now it. But 
reading your comments, I think I have an error: 
I have  kmailrc under /home/edgar/.kde4/share/config/, with rw permissions for 
owner, the file beeing owned by edgar/edgar. But I discovered another kmailrc 
under /home/edgar/.kde/share/config/  with rw, the file being owned by 
root/root. Perhaps this has generated the problems.
The one cent question:  Can I delete the /home/edgar/.kde kmailrc ? Why do I 
have two kmailrc's ?
Thank you very much for the help !
