I wish I could get kmail working.  It will be the first time I use 
Kubuntu and KDE exclusively.  I have come to believe that using their 
packages until you get used to them will allow their true genius to 
appear.  It has so far in all the other Kubuntu-KDE programs I have 
learned to use.  Including Dolphin for me.  I can remember the change 
and how I resisted.  Now I can't remember what I so needed in Feisty.  
Konqueror and Kmail have been my holdouts, I am ashamed to say.  Those 
who have conquered them have only good things to say about them.  I am 
sure I will agree, once I have given them a fair chance.
