Kmail, Not getting lock

Mon Feb 20, 2017 10:45 pm
Hi,
Running Pc-Linux 64 bit, fully updated. KDE Desktop. I have 2 POP Email accounts.
When opening Kmail after a short delay the following message appears.
[ message ]
The Email programe encountered a fatal error and will terminate now.
The error was :
Timeout trying to get lock,
[ end ]
Sometimes the two password entry windows appear before I open Kmail, if I enter the
passwords then open Kmail, it opens and works Ok. However if only one password
entry appears and is used then the fatal error message appears.
If I ignore the error message and click on Check Mail it brings up the password entry
Kmail still terminates, one or two attempts like that and Kmail can be opened and works Ok.

Also I have to enter the password every time I send an Email.

a ) Is there a fix for the 'Timeout trying to get lock' problem ?
b ) As the only user, is it possible to use Kmail without entering the passwords every time ?

Any help most welcome. Dave P..

Using uname -r I get 4.4.44-pclos1
its 64 bit, and has been updated regularly with all updates.
I don't know how to get any info on Kmail version etc.

Monday 20:30 Just tried to send an Email, it does not appear to be sent, but is moved to the Inbox,
with nothing in the Sent-Mail folder.

GIVEN UP, and gone on Holiday !!!!!!

kmail --version would help in this case.

Looks like the original poster has given up.

I expect that he is/was using Kmail 5.2.3, since I am having the same problem using Debian stretch (installed from .iso DVD 5 days ago).

Here's what I am seeing:

$ kontact -v
kontact 5.2.3


Synaptic reports something different (probably a Debian internal number):
kontact 4:16.04.3-4~deb9u


So I get the same error: About 10-15 seconds after starting Kontact (or Kmail), a popup box shows:
The Email program encountered a fatal error and will terminate now.
The error was:
Timeout trying to get lock.


and then it vomits the following:
