Do you get a command line prompt, a dialog box or just an error?
1. Command prompt (with use-agent commented out) - Good.
2. dialog box (with use-agent in) - ordinary box -> scope problem, special =
3. With passphrase caching OFF: error message with NO prompt or chance to p=
in the passphrase: This is down to an error in the config, often of=20
gpg-agent.conf - check the KMail HOWTO.
4. With passphrase caching ON : error message with no prompt etc. -> that's=
the expected behaviour if the variable is out of scope.

Please confirm that you have checked out the scope problem fully.
Have you done the eval command and started kmail from the same terminal?
I keep talking about this (simple) step but no-one seems to confirm that th=
have actually done it and still found errors. It truly is required if you a=
going to understand what is actually going wrong. So, does it work when you=
$ eval "$(gpg-agent --daemon)"
