I'd guess it's file perms somewhere along the line, probably on $KDEHOME/
share/config/konsolerc [1].  Ensure its UID/GID are set correctly and 
that it's writable by your user.

Of course I know some of your kmail history from earlier posts, but a bit 
after kmail akonadified, when I was jumping thru hoops to retrieve yet 
another lost mail due to akonadi, I asked myself why I had to deal with 
that, and decided I didn't, so now I don't.  I'm very happy on claws-mail 
now.  (And BTW, claws-mail has user-side script extensibility as a 
deliberate feature, so I expect you'd get along with it quite well too.  
The only downside is that switching can be a pain, but I'm /so/ glad I 
did, here.)

[1] If the var is unset, $KDEHOME defaults to ~/.kde as shipped by kde, 
but some distros change that to ~/.kde4 or something similar.
