I have been watching this discussion and most interesting it is.

When kmail started playing up for me, I am on 4.7.2 OpenSuse package, I took 
the opportunity to set up my own imap server, cyrus, and to use sieve to 
filter my mail into folders on the server.
This has worked for me and kmail has a good sieve editor. For those filter 
actions and my multiple identities I still use kmail but the removal of the 
rather large array of filters has allowed kmail to run well enough.

Anyone else tried this setup?

All the best,
Peter Lewis
