Problem is that you have to set up the username as well, and this
changes for each user. The same with password. Will it work to provide
all the other things, and will the username then be set automagically.
I guess we could spend some hours to test this as well, but obviously,
noone has cared. so please do, and if you find a working kmailrc for
/etc/skel, then include this, and tell us through the changelog.
