First step is to be patient.  If you have a LARGE volume of messages, it might 
take some time to retrieve all the message headers.  Also, KMail might be 
applying spam-assassin to the incoming messages as well (depends on whether 
you enabled that option in Kmail).

Secondly, check the logs on your server - see if you are getting any errors 
authenticating.  If so, check KMail and make sure you have the security 
settings correct (I like to just use the "See what the server supports" 
button and accept the recommended settings.

Beyond that, I don't know what else to try.... anyone?
