Thanks to Bram Schoenmakers for pointing me to the bug about this.  I just 
wouldn't have believed that an app like Kmail in a project like KDE could be 
this braindead!

One of the comments on the but suggested using fetchmail to get mail and then 
have KDE get it locally.  I used fetchmail to get mail for pine until I 
swithced to Kmail and then I turned fetchmail off.  How do I set KDE up to 
get mail from fetchmail.  I did some checking when I first setup Kmail but 
didn't see anything and then never got back to it.
