That's why I migrated to TB... For now.
It works a charme with my Imap setup, address book works well and is
synchronized with gmail contacts through an extension...
Yes, it is less integrated with kde but, at this point, who cares? I need a

And I'm talking of a PIV 2800 mhz, 1 GB ram, 512 MB of video card... Very
ancient... :)
