I'm using PCLinuxOS and I've had precisely the same thing happen. I work on 
two separate computers in two different locations and I need to copy all my 
Kontact data from one to the other. I cannot, whatever I do, copy KMail. 
Precisely the same thing happens - from the headers it seems it's all come 
across. Until I click on one of them, and like you all I get is 'No Subject'. 
Though I'm a very old hand at Windoze and new to Linux, something in my water 
tells me that  this is a Kmail problem and not to do with the distro. I've 
even tried copying the Kmail folder to a CD. Exactly the same thing - the 
headers are copied,  but as soon as you click on one you get 'No Subject'. 
Somebody in this Linux-erudite forum must surely know what's going on here.
