I'd disagree entirely. it took me 4 attempts (and 3 crashes) to get KMail to check my gmail account, the setup wizard didn't work at all, and as I said I have to give akostrigimuk 350MB of RAM to stop it killing my system. As far as I can tell KDE4 gets worse with every release.

The worst thing is that once I'd got KMail configured for my gmail account, akonadi keeps on checking it even when KMail isn't running. What the ****** is that about?

It's a good job there's Thunderbirtd.
