As someone who knows people who use KMail at work daily, and more who would use
it if they could, I can tell you one big thing holding back Mail / Kontact right now

Bug 58356 - WIthout this it is impossible to use KMail to read mail on an Exchange server with
SPA enabled. Since many admins use this method of security, it makes KMail useless without a
go-between like fetchmail. ( I know I posted I was working on a patch myself, but I hit a brick wall ),
and using fetchmail removes all the benfits of IMAP.

I already know of 6 people who had to ditch KMail for Evolution / Thunderbird / Fetchmail + X when their admins
turned this on.
