[Kde-pim] kmail handbook

Hello everybody,

a few days ago I volunteered for rewriting/reviewing the KMail handbook by 
entering my name in 
Before I did so I informed Paul Allen about this venture and he probably was 
so happy that somebody applied for that job at all that he even forgot to ask 
me if I was actually up to the task :-)

Though that remains to be seen I'd still like to introduce myself so that you 
firstly, can estimate who you are dealing with and secondly, can start figuring 
how to actually deal with me ;-)

My name is Manfred Mislik and I am a, more or less, faithful KDE user since 
the late nineties (I started with the beta release that should become KDE 1.0 
I believe) on a distro that was called DLD (Deutsche Linux Distribution) and 
eventually was swallowed by RedHat.

I am not a hacker, mostly because I don't really like to program with such  
finicking, fussy systems that even complain when there's a period or a comma 
missing somewhere and that can't actually figure anything out by themselves :-)
Still, I know my way around with bash, perl, php and even c++ but only so far 
that I *can* understand what I'm seeing. For programming as such I'm just too 
impatient. Sorry.

Because I've been working with GNU/Linux generally and KDE specifically for 
such a long time, I wondered how I could give something back to the community. 
Programming itself was ruled out pretty soon, but to help writing the 
documentation is something I feel like I can be comfortable with.

So, here I am, waiting for your suggestions what are the most pressing items 
that need a rewrite and/or update in the KMail handbook while I'm reading 
myself through the KDE specific docbook documentation and pester the 
documentation team with my questions.

And soon I'm going to pester you folks as well with my questions. But that's a 
different story.

On freenode you find me as tictric.
