Does KMail2 work better in 12.04

Hello Everybody

With respect to MySQL and SQLite - I have been tweaking today along the lines 
of your suggestions, Steve: in this thread as well as in your contribution on 
this subject at Kubuntu furums: http://bit.ly/Ivu0fH
Now, I am somewhere half way: at one netbook it seems to work quite well, at 
another one, I am in a seemingly vicious circle of complications.

The netbook where SQLite seems to work well, is a HP Pavilion dm 1. Main 
specs: 500 GB HD, 1,66 GHZ AMD Dual Core Processor,  4 GB RAM, Kubuntu 12.04. 
Dealing with IMAP GMAIL e-mail goes considerably smoother and quicker now.  
One question remains for this netbook:  do I need to UNinstall "Akonadi 
backend MySQL"? Uninstalling this would imply removal AND installation of a 
whole bunch of other packages- according to the info in MUON package manager. 
So, my question is now: can both MySQL and SQLite stay in the same system? 

The other netbook is an Eee PC 1001HA - 250 GB HD, 1,66 GHZ processor, 2GB 
RAM, Kubuntu 12.04. There, I have followed exactly the same procedure. 
However, I do simply not manage to get started Akonadi in that case.  Below 
you can find a so-called "Akonadi Server Self-Test Report" which highlights 
technical details with respect to the complications. A specific thread at 
forum.kde.org points at a remedy I have been using successfully recently in 
similar situations - removal of the akonadi-configuration:
~/.local/share/akonadi/
~/.config/akonadi/
~/.kde4/share/config/akonadi* 

But when restarting the system, I get back the original configuration - as a 
matter of consequence, MySQL is enabled and SQLite disabled.
My question is now: what to  do next to enable again SQLite together with 
Kontact?
Thanks for any input that might come in.
Respectfully yours,
Bas.
