I'd just like to put in a good word for the latest kdepim - I had given up on 
it for a while as well, but the 4.7.3 version has *really* come together. 
Interestingly it seems to work better with IMAP or dIMAP accounts that local 
ones. Currently I'm using it with my GMail account and it is coping *very* 
well and looks fabulous. Its nice to use something so well integrated with KDE 
use and look.

There is a problem with the  "Mail Dispatcher" agent disabling itself but that 
can be restarted using the akonadiconsole and apparently the problem is 
resolved in 4.7.4

Still some issues involving CPU load and nepomuk but a fix for that is in 4.8, 
I've been testing the 4.8 beta via project neon and it looks even better.

In short, definitely worth a revisit with 4.7.3 and with 4.8 it should finally 
be suitable for general usage - think KDE 4.6 :)

- Account migration seems somewhat dodgy still. I've been working from a fresh 
start with IMAP accounts.
