Those options didn't work in kmail 1.3.2, which is the version in
Debian/testing. I don't know why. However, with the help of my favourite
debugging tool (the Knoppix CD distribution), I found that kmail 1.4.3,
included in Knoppix, works just fine like that. I'll look into upgrading
to KDE 3.0 on my permenant install. Thanks a lot!
BTW, on the topic of updating the accout while you are accessing it: I
saw an option in the "modify account" dialog, under the "general" tab,
labeled "Enable interval mail checking". That might do the trick, unless
you are having a different problem.
