Well, apparently, there are not-quite-reproducible thingsways to make it
disappear for a while, unfortunately, it reappears. AFAICT, KMail does
send DELE messages to the server, as I checked with TLS switched off
temporarily, so it is surely tempting to blame the server. However, I
did not change anything about the server, but certainly changed KMail
and its KDE infrastructure.
