something is really wrong with my kmail/kontact

Dear all,

Not sure what caused the issues below, but I have the below-listed issues with kontact/kmail that appeared within the last week or two, and I can really use some recommendation as to how to solve them:

1.The toolbar button to compose new email is not functional. Clicking that button does not cause any response.
2. Typing anything in the search bar above the email list view causes immediate crash of kontact.
3. There is one email account (IMAP) that I removed from the kmail settings, which still is listed in folder view as offline. I cannot remove it from the folder view although this account technically does not exist anywhere else.
4. There are 2 email account that don't sync with the server. Connecting those account with the browser would show recent emails that are not listed by kmail. Checking mail by kmail seems to work on the surface by progress bar, etc. but it actually doesn't and recent emails are not listed/downloaded. Other email accounts (5) seems to function as expected.

I am speculating that something is corrupted in my KDEPIM settings. I tried removing accounts and adding them as new accounts via Kmail settings, which actually created the problem #3; therefore I am hesitant to use that approach again for problem #4. Is there a way to reset the whole KDEPIM and starting from scratch? If so, would you recommend it?
