Tools > Account Wizard > Account Assistant > KWallet Not Available - Account Assistant has wording that is odd. You say KWallet is not available but you urge that it be used. I suggest that you delete the second sentence ("It is strongly recommended to use KWallet for managing your passwords.") if the first and third sentences and what follows say everything the user needs to know.

I'm running KMail on openSuse 13.2 Linux, kept evergreen. I don't know if this is KMail2, but your bug tracking system doesn't list KMail as a product, so I guess this is the same thing.

"However, the password can be stored in the configuration file instead."
"However, the password can be stored in the KMail configuration file instead."
does that clarify what is meant here?

No, the first two sentences need editing. No objection to the edit you propose, but it still leaves the first two sentences in conflict with each other. Would deleting the second sentence from the original text mean that the remaining text (with your edit) would accurately describe the facts and the options for the user?
