That's horrible overkill - now you've turned off restarting ALL apps.

Session Manager, iirc, lets you specify to either restart with a _specific_ 
session, the last session you logged out from, or a new session.  So, it's 
worthwhile to check it, because you may be always restarting a session that 
had an active KMail, but I wouldn't turn it _off_.  I'd set Session Manager 
to restart the applications that were running when you logged out (kind of 
useless under KDE 4, since half the apps abort rather than saving their 
session states, but _ideally_ it's nice).
