Doh Kevin - try harder :)

I've done something but not sure what. I now have a kmail folder in Kwallet. 
The password field to get into Kwallet was blank so I've now changed that.
When I look in the kmail folder passwords shows 1 item however that item is 
marked unknown. How can I see what it is? Also does it assume one password 
for all accounts? The entry does disappear if I uncheck save password on the 
only account I have running at the moment.

Somehow I think I've had an update at some point - cause kwallet didn't appear 
at all when I set this suse up which may explain the mess.

Must look on the bright side - at least I do know some of the passwords.
