> Kmail was so popular I suspect it will be sorted at some point and the question is when, If that doesn't happen no doubt distro's will switch to something else as an unstable email package isn't a viable proposition for some one who's main interest is making use of a pc. It certainly isn't for enterprise wide solutions. The main aim of some distro's :-) Many of us do their testing for them including me.
On my comments about sources of solutions I was just pointing out that there are several sources. I keep track of the 3 I mentioned and have also found what is going on in Arch of interest at times. I think I have been on this list for about 15 years at least, a distro forum for a similar amount of time and the kde forum more recently.
As to the comments about distro's when I started things were very clear. Not so these days all seem to be more aggressive with updates and problems some more so than others but I suspect that's largely down to KDE4 being so new. The fact that it's user base is growing again should help with that aspect. Personally I hope once again at some point this lists reaches anything up to 50 emails a day. :-) I really don't like gnome or the other desktops.
