While this is quite true, I'd like to point out that Akonadi changes the way 
application work with data such that any program is not necessarily the sole 
user of a specific resource setup.

KMail will most likely be the main reason a system is running maildir 
resources, however people right now could be experiementing with the Akonadi 
based Mailody version, etc.

In the future there might be more unlreated apps overlappingly using certain 
parts of the Akonadi setup. E.g. a mail notification applet might be using the 
data from the same IMAP resource as a calendar application for a calendar 
stored on a Kolab server (which is built on IMAP for data access).

So currently Anne's comment is true because there are no production level user 
interfaces for mail from Akonadi, but this is likely to change during the next 
couple of releases.
