Here is the link to the previous occurance of this problem.

You are probably having the same problem as I did. See if you have the file /etc/kde3/ui/ui_standards.rc. If not, download it from the kde cvs

and place it in /etc/kde3/ui/

I don't know why the file is not installed, because it is in the list (dpkg -L kdelibs-data | grep ui). Maybe a result of not doing a complete purge of kde3-beta debs before install??

Erik,  Thanks!  That was the magic bullet.  The addition of the
ui_standard file corrected the menu issues completely.  And yes, I believe
you are right about not completely purging previous versions.  I ran into
the same scenario trying to upgrade X on a couple Debian machines.  It
seems that dpkg --remove doesn't do as complete a job as dpkg --purge.
It would seem that --remove leaves some scripts/data/info behind that
may make subsequent reinstalls skip installing some files from within a
package, maybe it thinks they are already there.  --purge seems to wipe
the slate completely clean.  At any rate, KDE 3.0.2 is now working
wonderfully. Thanks for your help!

I don't know what you guys' kmail menus look like but mine read like this:

file - edit- view - folder - message - No text! - view.

The last two contain the following items:

No text! :
configure filters
configure pop filters
configure filters
configure pop filters

same as the first "view" menu, that is: 5 items about headers, 3 about attachments, 1 about fixed width fonts.

I never noticed it since upgrading to kde3 (never needed to change my prefs).
Where does kmail actually store it's prefs, account information and so on?
