I was going to say that they are real world useless because to create new 
search folders you have to do something completely different then what you 
think you should do.  I think I should be able to right click, or click some 
"add search folder", instead you have to open the Find Messages dialog and 
after you create the search, *then* search and *then* rename the "Search 
Folder Name" it magically appears in the folder listings.  If you do any of 
those steps wrong you wont get it to work.  Did anyone else find that 
confusing and not intuitive?  KMail might have search functionality, but I 
bet you almost no one uses it because it is so hard to manage and maybe that 
is why it doesn't get much testing and has poor performance.
