Don't know if some one else is still fiddling with KMail 2, but
I think it's a lot better usable now. At least, it doesn't
'eat babies' anymore :-) I'm using KMail2 as part of KDE
4.5.1-2 (F15, rawhide), in 'IMAP-mode' (gmail). Of course
there are some issues:
1. Notifications are rather paranoia. Notifications appear at
random, telling that there are new messages but there aren't.
2. Switching from one folder to another doesn't activate latest
read message in that folder.
3. Selecting a To: recipient from the contacts list doesn't
show up in the To: field of the New mail compose window.
Martin: I posted a number of issues some time back that I was
having, and others that occurred when I tried to revert. I was
finally able to figure it out and have successfully gone back.
Before I did, what I was getting:
1) I didn't get the issue with notifications
2) I didn't have this problem either
3) I didn't try this one, so I can't say
What I did get was a lot of confusion regarding what was already
downloaded mail, and what wasn't. Messages would get downloaded
multiple times. Sometimes, they would get filtered into the
appropriate folder, sometimes a duplicate would be downloaded and
left in the inbox - (I was having to highlight new mail
constantly, and do a 'Ctl-j' to run the filters manually, followed
by going to each folder and running a 'Ctl-Shift-* to eliminate
duplicates)- with over 40 folders, this got to be very tedious.
Processing time started out terrible but seemed to improve with
subsequent updates, but, the filtering/duplicate download problem
never resolved - for now, I'm back to previous version, and KMail
is working well again
