I'm sure it has nothing to do with the quality of your English, which is 
perfectly understandable.  I have been using KMail constantly since 2002, and 
have never seen what you describe, and was surprised that Ingo didn't jump in 
and support you - I realise now that he has said he doesn't use KDE 4.x, so 
possibly didn't know the answer.  However, now that you have had a chance to 
confirm the behaviour I went to my server, which uses CentOS 5.4 - the 
equivalent of FC 6.  What I saw was as I remembered it.  Now comes the good 

Since you were confident, I poked around all the settings menus.  There, under 
Appearance, is a System Tray tab, where you can enable such an icon.  I've 
simply never used it.  So - back to Fedora 12, check settings, and it's still 
there, exactly as it was!  So the answer appears to be yes, you can get back 
the behaviour you liked.

I seem to recall that I didn't use that because it indicates the number of 
unread mails, which I saw as unnecessary because I always have KMail open.

Sorry that I was wrong, earlier, but at least we seem to have a resolution.
