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.
