Actually, I can't give a lot of information. Every time I try to start kmail, it crashs.
Command line output:
gerecke@cheng:~$ kmail
gerecke@cheng:~$ KCrash: Application 'kmail' crashing...

Then the crash report applet opens. That's it.

I have shomewhat of an idea but I can not confirm it at the moment, since kmail won't run.
Yesterday, I searched some imap-folder with a custom search. Kmail kept telling me the search was invalid or not supported or somthing like that. But really, this is just a guess.

I'd really appreciate some help to get my kmail back. I need it urgently.

Ok, fixed it myself :)

I deleted the "last search" in ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/search

The underlying bug remains, though. Kmail should not chrash because of something like a search pattern it does not like.

Content of the "last search" file:
