KMail

On a default installation of the KDE desktop, you'll find an icon for Kontact already sitting in your Kicker panel. The icon design will vary (mine is a globe with an envelope and a calendar page on top), but moving your mouse over the icons will reveal tooltips that will help you identify the application. Kontact, as I mentioned, is usually under the Office submenu. It's also possible to start KMail without Kontact by clicking the big K, looking into the Internet submenu, and selecting KMail from there.

Shell Out

If you wish to start KMail from the shell, just type its command, kmail &, at the shell prompt. Alternatively, you can press <Alt+F2> and type the command there. For the remainder of this chapter, I'm going to work with KMail as it is represented in the Kontact personal information manager suite.
