Can you switch to another mailer? Thunderbird works fine, and many people
(including me) are using Claws mail. I have finally given up on KMail, it
is too unstable, and while moving an IMAP folder it ate all mails in it.
That's when I abandoned it mostly.

Claws cannot use local maildirs, and I'm not sure about Thunderbird, but
at least you would have a way to send mails.

I am using IMAP these days, that way it does not matter much which mailer
I use, they all show the same. Of course that's different when you use
local mails or POP3.
