That's not at all the same thing as having kontact in the system tray -
that's having KMail in the tray.  That was my first question when this
thread started, because I routinely have KMail and Akregator in the tray.

You can't just say "kontact or kmail", they're different beasts.

I came across an interesting "feature" while playing with this today,
though.  If I run kontact, and switch to KMail, and then close the window
with the close button on the top right, kmail (and kontact) don't close -
kmail is simply iconized.  If, however, I switch first to News (KNode), and
close the window, kontact (and kmail) close...  I love consistency.
