No, I mean whatever is delivered through the "i" icon (see attachment), on my 
system on the right side of the panel.

I was hoping for a more general switch, which blocks all notifications from 
kmail to the "i" icon. But this one might help as well and is probably very 
useful for cases when the network goes down (I see hangs of the imap client 
regularly, when the network comes back).
