Thank you very much for the offer! Actually after a reboot, KMail works 
now :)  (re-login did not work for some reason).

It has lost my filters and my profiles needed to have their sent-folder 
reset, but other than that migration seems to have been completed 
successfully! The new Kmail feels really great, finally the interface 
doesnt block when downloading mail!!! Oh another thing I noticed is that 
it takes rather long (8-11seconds) to open the options, although I have 
a fairly high-end system (phenomX4, 3ghz, SSD...).

Do you think these minor issues are worth reporting?
