I also had problems with Kmail2
I'm still using Mageia 1 because, when I tried to migrate to Mageia 2 errors 
occurred with Kmail2, as mentioned in the forum:

"Kmail2: error opening folder, is missing - Mga 2 - 482 ​​Kde"

The Kmail in Mageia 1 has many features and is very fast and in Mageia 2, Kmail2 
is not so good.

I made mistakes in the data import for Kmail2 causing more errors. I have tried 
to test importing the files correctly and kmail2 now work without errors, but I'm 
not insecure. I need to be sure that it is working better.

There are options: "thunderbird", "Evolution" and "Claws Mail", but I would like 
to continue using Kmail, which is very good. Maybe I should wait for the updates 
of KDE in Mageia 2 or Mageia 3.
