Thanks for your advice.
I tried following it, but only with partial success.
First I installed cyrus-imapd, but I decided on reading the documentation
that life was too short for this;
so I uniinstalled cyrus-imap and installed dovecot instead.
But as far as I could see, when I ran kmail (with an imap account)
on my laptop the email was downloaded from my desktop to the laptop,
which wasn't what I wanted.
Maybe I set up the IMAP account on kmail on my laptop incorrectly?
