The question still, is how to make this work, not to make me start using smtp
It sounds like (from Jeremey's email) that kmail leaves its IMAP connection open at all times and that's the problem.
One solutions would be to patch Courier-IMAP to update the timestamp for the connection every 15 minutes it was still open.
Is it possible to configure kmail to not keep a persistent IMAP connection? Can you add a bogus POP account to kmail so it's popping into the server every 15 minutes?
