I had a similar problem, and it was so because I used imap folders to
store my calendar, together with KDE alarm service (not exactly the
title, perhaps). The alarm service starts up and then tries to access
the imap folders, therefore it stats Kmail.

I have not found a workaround, though I would like the Kontact to start,
not just Kmail. So i stopped using imap folders for my calendar...
