But is it is not a virus, what is it.  I don't know anything else to check.  
Did you read my explanation of how functions stopped?  Did you notice the 
progression, always only affecting email sending?  What normal error could 
occur that would create those symptoms?  Do you think I have been making this 
up?  I also tried kdesudo dpkg --configure -a.  I make .kde into .kdeold and 
rebooted.  I formatted the OS partition and re-installed.  Nothing had an 
impact on the computer.  I don't yet know other methods of analysis using the 
shell that would give information that would help.  What would you check next 
if you had my problem?
