My main machine (the one I also read mails on) still runs KDE 3.3.2 and a 
Debian based system that has not been updated for over a year, so I can't say 
what's up with newer versions.

I never had crashes with kmail 1.6.2 and Kontakt 0.8.1 seems OK, although I 
usually start kmail directly, not from kontakt.

I have to take a look at thunderbird some time, but a quick test did not 
really please me: a bit heavy, and some base configurations that were not 
straitforward to correct (I think my version of Thunderbird defaulted to 
creating html mail).

As to spam filters, I never tried Thunderbirds - but really, bogofilter is 
worth the effort. When comparing with others (wether they use filters 
provided by their ISP, or M$, or any), I always hear of lost mails, or spam 
that gets through, while I hardly have anything to report...


The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
