Have you tried double-clicking on the message in your outbox to open it and
then clicking 'Send' again? Also, don't confuse a legitimate server busy
problem with an error at your end. Your KMail settings don't normally change
on their own, so you should expect it to work the same way every time you run
it. What happens if you just forget about the problem for a couple of hours?
Does it clear itself up (or have you not tried this?)

If you can see the processes running, that is the first step to learning how
to kill them individually. Before we get into that, though, how long are you
waiting before <shudder> rebooting? Are you certain those processes won't
eventually just time out?
