Thunderbird will do this.

I agree with you though. I wish KMail would catch up with the real 
world. KMail and the whole KDE-Pim suite has such huge potential. It has 
all of the right parts to compete with other corporate office 
productivity suites but for some reason there does not seem to be much 
interest in making it any more than a home user or hobbyist's 
distraction. It is like a Hollywood Old West Salon. From the front it 
looks real. Take a look behind the swinging doors, though and all you 
see a dirt lot. The real thing is somewhere else...

I just noticed that Dotan says that the developers are working on it and 
it should be ready in a year... I have waited for 3 or 4 years now and 
have become both impatient and disgruntled. If he is right, one more 
year will seem like it is just around the corner... on the left through 
the swinging doors... I sure hope there is a place to sit and cold root 
beer on tap  :)

Sometimes I wonder.  Were our faith able to stand upright and look around, would it be looking down at the mustard seed or standing in awe of the height and breadth of it.
