Thanks, Anne.  I found the "locale" radio button in KMail that set the 
date/time to 2005-09-09 17:58 format and got rid of the "friendly" time 
stamps in the message-list.  In the process, I discovered how to change 
what KMail displays in the mail folder list.

Now, I need to find how to get KMail to save incomplete draft messages on 
the IMAP server in the same file used by Pine.

At the moment, KMail has the lead over Evolution as my replacement for 

The acid test will be whether KMail or Evolution can successfully query 
the Windows domain controller for mail addresses.
