As Duncan, I have switched to Claws Mail. I miss some features, but it
does the job. I did not migrate my local mails to Claws' mbox format, but
I do not have many, so this is no problem. I still use Kontact/KMail
occasionally, but often when I do, strange things happen.

Thunderbird also seems to work fine.

This is faster here, but often some read mails do not become unread. Many
of other small issues, like specific folders that cannot be displayed
(unable to fetch from backend). And after it ate thousands of my mails,
when I only wanted to move an IMAP folder to another location [*], I
decided to stay away from it. At least for a while. And I will never try
operations that potentionally make me lose data, without making sure I
have backed it up.

Too bad, I really liked KMail. But my data is more important to me.
