Screenshot showing error dialog

The error dialog that Kmail shows when it get disconnected from the network (see attachment) is too intrusive. In my case, it keeps on popping up whenever my wifi connection is dropped. It does not get automatically dismissed, and sometimes I get multiple instances of this dialog popping up in short succession. Since this appears even when Kmail runs in the background (grabbing focus and interrupting my work), it would be better to have this as a notification which uses the normal desktop notification system.
