Kmail message storage folders

I currently have Kmail on my server, with thousands of messages in Maildir
format on a separate partition (which simplifies migration/upgrading).
They're sorted into many subfolders such as 'cars', 'accounts', 'kde' etc.

I typically ssh into the server from whichever laptop I'm using and run Kmail
on the server via ssh, which avoids any syncing issues.

Kmail without kdewallet?

I'm running Kmail 5.2.3 and kdewallet under Debian 9. Can I safely uninstall
kdewallet? (Kmail is the only program I run that uses it).

Reason is, I usually start Kmail on my server via ssh from some laptop or
other. If I go to fetch mail from my ISP, Kmail opens a box for my ISP's
mail password (the same as my previous installation of Kmail 4 did).
However, IF I've previously logged in to my server, kdewallet opens a box for
its password on the server instead, which is a nuisance (and much bafflement
before I accidentally found this out).
