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.
