It should be in your distro's repository. Assuming your distro uses apt you just type

Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get install kmail

Well, you need to fix your broken packages first, and then check with your distribution if the problem persists. We do not make packages, that is something done by distributions.
Hint: trying to install kdepim rather than kmail alone should just work.

Mind you, a tad more information about the exact distribution and version you use on your computer goes a long way when you raise this at your distribution :-)

Hi, thanks to all that comments.

"Broken" is the correct description! Having tried everything suggested here and elsewhere (except for reinstalling the OS or deleting all the config and data files) I went for broke an reinstalled kde-desktop. Re-installation went just fine and after that, kmail installed just fine.
