Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kmail

If you have an IMAP account, and you put your machine into suspend, when
you resume kmail will immediately try to check for new mail, however the
network probably hasn't come online by this time, and so it just gets
confused, often requiring a restart of kmail to make it behave normally
(the most general symptom is that the progress bar sticks at 98%). Note
that if you use disconnected IMAP, it is better. You can usually abort
the attempted connection and start a new one, and it'll be fine.

It should probably detect the network state and switch into
online/offline mode accordingly.
