    kmail keeps locking up

    Hello all,
    I've had the problem of kmail locking up every once in a while for years, but it's happened 3 times in the last 3 days. And it's not just a case of closing it and reopening it: there are sub-processes which, if killed, make it so that kmail won't work until the next reboot.
    So what happens ? It checks for mail on my pop3 accounts and it never finishes. I can keep using it in the meanwhile but no new messages come in.

    Unless someone can explain how to restart kmail properly, I have to reboot the system, which I am loathe to do (it's a server for a lot of things).
    $ ps faux | grep mail

    Re: kmail keeps locking up

    try with <akonadictl restart/stop/start>

    It exist a graphical utility "Akonadi Configuaration" that should do the same thing, or add the akonadi tray icon.
