KDE upgrade is not available via Mandrake Update - I wouldn't know how to 
upgrade it otherwise.

I did a bug search of "sender" and didn't find anything - but I now believe 
this is actually a bug.

This problem was actually happening on a friends machine.  At first I 
thought the empty message in her outbox could be ignored, until I finally 
figured out that the empty message was causing the error, not the new 
message that I created.  The problem is that there was no email in "to" 
field of empty message.  So the error should have been "recipient address 
is missing", not "sender address is missing" - the bug is in the error 
message text.  Once I was able to determine the real problem, it was easy 
to fix - simply delete the empty message from outbox.

Perhaps someone could test this on a current version and report the bug if 
it still exists.
