There are a number of gmail notifiers in the Universe repository 
including this one for specifically for KDE:

KDE systray application to check GMail accounts
KCheckGMail is a KDE systray application which checks GMail accounts for
new mail. It includes KWallet support.

I've often wondered if gmail hangs like it does because it doesn't use 
standard ports (port 995 for pop and 587 for smtp as opposed to port 25 
and 110). Could Kmail be waiting for the port to open and/or close?
