I don't recall the exact error message, but something about the connection 
to the imap server had been broken and may be restored later. I tend to 
leave KMail/Kontact open, especially when I'm "web surfing"  and doing other 
things or overnight so I can check email in the morning w/o having to wait 
for it to download. Typically, I can go back to Kmail/Kontact and hit F5 to 
refresh and it'll reconnect. Occasionally I have to close KMail/Kontact and 
shut down Akonadi (sometimes I have to kill Akonadi to get Kmail/Kontact to 
start up properly, but that's another issue) and reopen KMail/Kontact in 
order to get Imap to work.

As I mentioned I've had occasional issues with Akonadi apparently being 
"hung" in the background after closing Kmail/Kontact and when I open 
Kontact the next time, it opens up, but hangs and doesn't respond to 
attempts to navigate, sometimes the message preview window is garbled 
(looks like a videotape playing while being fast-forwarded) and I have to 
close it, kill Akonadi and restart it, sometimes two or three times to get 
it working properly.
