I have a question.  If you're going to let KMail store the password in a less 
secure fashion, why not just go ahead and let Kwallet store it in a more 
secure fashion?  

What I did was supply the passwords (because I use KMail with multiple 
accounts) and a KWallet password, and then gave KMail (or Kontact) the ok to 
always open it.

No more prompts, no worries.

Not only that but if you want to use keys so sign messages KWallet comes in 
handy there too.
