If you plan on using KMail as your primary mail agent, then you may want 
to keep a watch on the KMail forums of the KDE Forums site[1]. They can 
probably answer your questions more quickly there; there are recent 
questions regarding the same problems as you are experiencing on that 

I have always wanted to migrate to KMail as all of the integration with 
KDE makes sense to me. However, every time I look into it on the KMail 
forums, it is clear that there are still on-going problems with it, and 
to me, it is still too much of a gamble to use it if you use your email 
professionally or if you value your email.

The Thunderbird + Lightning (calendar)[3] extension are rock solid and 
have caused me practically no problems in over more than a decade of 
use. I use Thunder+Lightning for my e-zine work[4]. I receive over 
300-400 messages per day and they are all filtered into their respective 
folders. I also have a huge contact list; I also have an extension that 
queues up emails to be sent at a later date and time[5]; I also manage 
my 78 year old mother and father-in-law's Google calendar remotely with 
an extension to the Lightning calendar[6].

You can also do your IMAP Gmail with Thunderbird.
