I've taken to using Opera mail and I'm getting to like it more and more  
but of course it doesn't have the Calendar.  It's disappointing when a  
programme just get's worse and worse rather than a continual line of  
improvement.  The old Kmail on my wifes openSUSE 11.2 box works fine. No  
issues, rock solid.  I'm not sure what to do beyond posting on bugzilla.   
There seems to be a database issue and possibly there might be a fix at db  
level I don't know but it appears that Kmail has been abandoned by the  
devs given the lack of response on bugzilla.
