Yeah, i actually have manjaro on the other machine and kmail works there fine 
as well. So it seems for me that questionable packaging techniques are a 
factor here but I can't tell the precise details.

As for the importance of the akonadi: it is actually a well designed piece of 
software architecture that simplifies all PIM apps drastically. Removing 
akonadi from PIM is not only (IMHO) pointless but also prohibitively expensive 
endeavor. Instead I would try to investigate what is the actual problem with 
the packaging and try to seek some kind of remedy for it.
