cd to the directory Mail/saved_mail and remove *all* the index files,
.saved_mail.index, .saved_mail.index.ids and .saved_mail.index.sorted.

restart kmail and it will recreate the indexes. If *you* didn't tell
kmail to ?expire? the mail, it didn't.

Threats will probably make windoz work better for you. If you think
that eudora is that much better than the linux apps, you should return
to the luser groupies. Do you believe that threatening to "go back" to
windoz will get you better or quicker help here?
