  The problem I have seen repoted is mainly that TB is still not very
good at re-synchronising 'maldir' folders when emails have been
added/deleted, so I'm awaiting improvements there before I jump.

(I use POP rather than IMAP, and when cloning the email database
between desktop and laptop (for trips away), I want to use rsync,
which is why I want to stay with 'maildir', and why I therefore need a
TB that handles it well (i.e. as good as KMail)..

Although I have no problems with KMail2's handling of maildir folders,
it's the Find Messages facility that I need working well, and it has
been a disaster in KMail2 - though improving, I hear.

In the meantime I'm stuck with Mandriva 2010.2 and its excellent Kmail.
