These problems are why I subscribed to this list. I thought that I was either 
missing something in plain sight that was causing me to misuse Kmail or that 
there was some workaround available to make these issues less problematic. I 
dumped KDE when 4.0 was shoved in my face by Kubuntu, and I had used Kmail for 
years before that. I only recently returned to KDE in Fedora and found that 
Kmail was no longer the stable and reliable mail client that I remembered.

For some time I used Mutt, but I often get mail with attachments in MS Office 
formats, and Mutt makes handling those a PITA. I like to compose mail in Vim, 
and that, at least, still works in Kmail. Maybe I should look into Claws Mail. 
That would have been a more seamless transition from Mutt than Kmail was.
