I had that same issue and so many others that I gave up. Running 
Thunderbird now. (This isn't a flame but what a lot of people do. The 
reason why I brought it up is because even if you spend time debugging 
this issue, are you sure its worth it? Argh, this hurts, I've been a 
kmail user since the very beginning...)

Anyway, I started debugging the issue and it seems that its mostly a 
akonadi related issue. Look at the akonadiconsole and see the state. Try 
stopping akonadi before logging out (akonadictl stop) and see if that 
makes a difference.
