Hi Eugen,

I completely dropped Kontact because of all those still sorta unsolved
issues with Akonadi (the more than suboptimal connection with Google
Calenders was one of it).
As much as I liked Kontact for what it offered there are solutions that
work better (Evolution and Thunderbird come to my mind). I for example
switched to Thunderbird, since I also can use it on the windows side.

Talk to you later ... Hans (11 to go)
