I think that you have to give a second try to kmail. After 2 days i have solved the most of the problems, it remains a problem, it asks the imap password at every first startup, but i hope to solve it soon too.
In comparison with kmail1 it is very much faster, and even when deleting multiple mails .
I dont have any problem using it.
