Have you erased or damaged the inbox folder, either knowingly or unknow-
What does 'ls -la ~/Mail' give you? I tend to erase index file sometimes
(so do others) because they lead to issues on occasions. Have you got any
recent backups from which you can recover the mail folders and revert to
an older and functional state? The subject line is surprising as KMail se-
ems like a solid application.
