@manu this solution seems to be very handy 🤣
It is - it really saves so much time!
@manu did you tried ?
kmail isn't running. It's something more "akonandi" something something. So you can't kill the process, you have to uninstall it.
Or, you can spend hours looking on various forums full of rage-posts about how the default settings are wrong and buried in the wrong ui and there's not even a kmail process visible you can kill.
How to disable getting emails without uninstalling Kmail:
Launch Kmail, go to "Settings" -> "Configure Kmail". Then in "Accounts" go to the tab called "Receiving" and for each account, cick on "Retrieval options" and check "Switch Offline on Kmail shutdown".
This makes "Kmail", or whatever is actually fetching emails, not fetch emails when Kmail is closed.
It's not complicated, it just needs to be found out, and sometimes, "ain't nobody got time for that".
