My problem is solved , after disabling "include this folder when checking for 
new mail" and "Act on New/unread mail in this folder" on [Gmail] folder and 
changing some settings in Gmail Lables, kmail works without any problem, and I 
can move/delete messages, (but I can't move/delete any folders)...

Thanks for your help and time :)
