Since last week I found that in Kmail sometimes messages in my inbox but
also in my suse folder are not shown. Or they only show the header
without content.

In the Kmail Version 1.9.10 (KDE 3.5.9) I had a similar problem where you
get the subject showing up without any body to the email. This appears to
be caused by corrupt index files.

The way I clear the problem is exiting Kmail and deleting the 3 index files
associated with the mail folder.
i.e. <folder>.index, <folder>.ids, <folder>.sorted

I think that makes it forget some status about the mails (not sure, and I
don't feel like trying :) ). Another workaround is temporarily moving the
mail to another folder (using other mail client or web interface), that'll
cause KMail to refetch the mail body.
