i even switched from kmail2 to thunderbird for about a year (on linux), when 
the akonadi disaster rendered it completely unusable for me. that was horrible 
and the worst move i have ever experienced in my >15 years of using free 

but i missed it, especially when it came to PGP integration. so after that 
year, i gave it another try, and now i'm happy to be back.

within C3S.cc, all of our communication is PGP encrypted. we have mac, windows 
and linux users, and it was a really painful process in the beginning. the mac 
users had to quit using apple mail because its PGP support turned out to be 
unreliable (i admire the guys working on that plugin, but everytime apple 
decides to temper with the program, you're sometimes unable to read your 
encrypted mails for days or even weeks, until reverse engineering finally made 
PGP work again). the only real alternative on mac we found was thunderbird 
with enigmail. again, i admire the work, but still it's a long way to a 
userfriendly workflow, especially when it comes to key management and huge 
amounts of encrypted mails.

long story short: if it was easy to install kontact & kgpg on mac, the mac 
world would gain secure mail encryption in a really comfortable out-of-the-box 
implementation. i'd love to see that :-)
