You wouldn't need to reset if you can shut down kmail and copy kmailrc in.  
You'd just need to restart kmail, I think.

OK - I know there are a few files related to the directory that gets created 
there.  I could be wrong, but I think that when you get kmailrc back in, 
restarting will set up all that directory again for you.

I think data usually only gets lost if an operation was in progress at the 
very moment of the crash.
