I thought about that, yes. But as I use thunderbird (on different
windows systems and linux) and kmail (up to last weekend version 1,
since last weekend version 2 on linux only) I did not want to use
another one.

About two (or may be even three) years ago I had some issues with kmail.
That was the reason for me testing claws. As the kmail problems were
solved a month later there was no need for claws any more.

Since about tree days I use kmail2 and had no problems until then. But I
did not went the migration way. I completely removed all kmail
configurations and started from the beginning. As I don't use filters in
kmail nor any other special settings reconfiguration took about one hour
(configuring imap server, creating four identities, setting some
exirations and mailing list config to mail folders ...). I removed the
nepomuk database as well.

Searching in mails is currently limited, but as I rarely use global
search this is not a big problem.
