This time I looked for a simple tool to delete single (or all) entries from the "Recent Addresses" list of KMail. My internet research didn't bring up anything useful, so I wrote this little Python/Tkinter script.

Current version

Archive with the Python script (v1.0).


Simply start the script as


and it will try to open your local KMail resource file (~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc). The list of current entries is displayed and you can select one with the left mouse button. The button "Delete" removes the selected entry from the list, the menu item "Delete all" clears the list completely.

Don't forget to "Save" the new config file after you're done! Another important thing is, that you shouldn't run this script and KMail itself at the same time.
