KWallet is not set up by default.  It gets setup if you reply 'yes' to a 
question about whether to save a password.

I have no idea why kmail seems to be trying to access the wallet, but you may 
find out by setting some controls on the wallet.

You need kwalletmanager.  Can you see a wallet in your system-tray?  I so, 
clicking on it will start the manager.  If not, you should be able to start it 
from the menu.  Highlight the wallet, > Settings > Configure Wallet.  You 
could disable it, as Shaggy Wolf suggests, but before you do I'd suggest that 
you try changing to one of the Close Wallet options.

If you for the wallet to close in one of those circumstances, when an 
application requires the wallet you will get a popup asking for the wallet 
password.  At least then you will know whether it's really kmail, or something 
else, that is trying to launch the wallet.
