Hi there,

I am new to this list but not to Linux. I have tried kmail and the same 
nags got me down too. But, just a suggestion, have a look at Sylpheed. 
It is in the universe repository and you can install it using adept. I 
have used it as my main email client for years and I personally think it 
is excellent. I have tried others, at the moment I use thunderbird as 
well. IMHO Sylpheed is easily the best and easiest to use. You have 
tremendous control over how it works, and the filters are great. It is 
so far the only one where I can say in a filter instruction 'Do not 
receive' which can be very useful.

Apart from the nagging about kwallet, I didn't like kmail much anyway, 
so perhaps I am predjudiced. To all group members I recommend Sylpheed, 
have a look at it. I am new to kubuntu, Edgy is my first, and so far I 
am liking it.
