I didn't had any crash before with those softwares. I really don't know
what is the problem. But it's likely that it comes from the RPMs I used
or from an incompatibility between KDE and Mandriva.

Yes, by default, Thunderbird sends html mail (and yes, it's stupid).
There are some configurations to do, but it takes 2 minutes (when it's
the nth time you do it ;)
After that, I find Thunderbird easy to use and lighter than kmail which
has a lot of useless options (to me, of course, no, it's not a troll !).
One example : when I righ click on a mail, the contextual menu of kmail
is so long ! It's boring to search in it by reading all the entries.

In the matter of spams, Thunderbird includes a very good bayesian filter
(I receive very few spams, I must say). At the beginning, you have to
mark what is spam (and what is not if thunderbird make a mistake), just
by clicking on a button. And after sometimes, the filter is just perfect.
