    Yes.
    KMail doesn't support storing passwords in plain text in its config files any more since years.

    As already indicated, you can give the wallet an empty password though, it should never popup then and just save the passwords.

    You'd need to run kwalletmanager (the KDE4 version, which should actually be installed by default) to activate the KDE4 kwallet (which is used by the KDE4 version of KMail) and change the wallet's password.

    Thanks to everyone for helpful suggestions. I think she has KMail working acceptably.
