I had the problem that on opening KMail
I got the error message "Failed to fetch the resource collection."
I seem to have solved the problem, more or less randomly,

This allowed me to start KMail,
and I went to Accounts, double-clicked on Local Folders
and entered /home/tim/Maildir where asked
"Select the folder containing the maildir information:"
