Yep, I'm using 4.7.3... still, it has this awful issue:

I have INBOX folder with subfolders: Sent, Trash, ....

If I try to configure them all (default), all folders has mails,
except INBOX.... if I change server-side subscriptions, and disable
all folders but INBOX (root for others), then it shows messages...

Yeah, CPU usage too, nepomuk... and not related to kdepim, Strigi
still wants to re-index everything everytime I login.... I decided to
just disable it.... as a matter of fact, I don't yet know how to use
the indexes it creates, so.. it is not like I'm losing something vital
