You could try running kmail from the command line (eg in Konsole terminal) and take note of any output you get. Or run it through gdb (Gnu DeBugger) with "gdb kmail" and then doing "run". When it crashes you can try a backtrace, "bt", but you probably won't get much useful out of that unless kmail was compiled with debugging symbols.

Other option ... what are the links for. Could be the sites that you're trying to access that are not good. Try copy and pasting links into Konqueror or your default browser.

thanks for the help.

tried running from console and got not meaningfull output to me.

tried with gdb. its the standard kmail from slack11 packages not sure if compiled with debug willing to bet it is not.

got something I think will be usefull with gdb kmail

the url is good no bad stuff from them atleast shouldnt be.

konqueror is now crashing on me when download script executes and the save open or cancel dialog box popsup though go to hit save and it crashes, think open has worked.

everything was working fine a week ago. kopete no longer connecting for me either.

copy past works
I deleted my .kde file and some other user config folders.
got kmail working with links. weird. kopete doesnt want to connect but have gaim and that will work. nothing like living in interesting times
