Version: 1.11.1 (using 4.2.1 (KDE 4.2.1), Kubuntu packages)
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.27-11-generic
If I suspend my computer and the wake it up again kmail can no longer check for new emails. I have to quit kmail and then restart it in order for this to work.
The interface is still responsive when this happens - it's just that there is no progress when checking for new emails.

Just to see if this kmail specific or a kde libs problem.
Have you noticed similiar problems whith other KDE applications?
I have not noticed this with any other application. Kopete reconnects just fine, as an example.
I have not encountered the problem with akregator. But I'm also not seeing the problem right now either. What has changed? Well I've started using konqeror for web browsing. (Previously I used firefox exclusively.) So maybe there is some interplay.
More info: kmail reported to me that the process managing the imap connection terminated unexpectedly. This is the heart of the problem. Had to restart kmail to regain mail access. Is it possible for this process to simply be restarted after an unexpected crash? It doesn't crash the mail program after all.
That message (just happened again):
Unexpected Program Termination
The program on your computer which provides access to the imaps://imap.gmail.com protocol has unexpectedly terminated.
I guess that rules out the notion of interplay with konq

Still exists in KDE 4.3.4.
I have this problem already years with different kmail-versions (always running under gnome and with IMAP).
After the internet-connection was closed or the computer slept (standby) kmail is not able to look for new e-mails. Only after a popup-message (something like: „unexpectedly internet-connection was broken“) appeared (I always have to wait for that message, or - if it does'nt come - have to restart kmail) and I clicked OK, it works again.
I confirm that. I had this problem under KDE 4.3.* and it's still very much there in 4.4 rc.
It says "The connection to account timed out". Simply restarting kmail has no effect, I have to kill it's kio_file and kmail processes under System Activity for it to start working again.
I can confirm this in KDE 4.4.1, KMail 1.13.1 - hangs after suspend
Have to restart KMail after every suspend.
