    i know in evolution you have to set it where it's Use Secure Connection must be "ALWAYS" or it won't work with gmail that's sending and receiving. Kmail seems SSL isn't turned on. when you are looking at the edit page there is a second tab you have to click on and then click SSL. then click ok and it should work. i don't use KMail anymore or i'd check for sure.
