"Since spam affects most people and kmail does not have its own spam-filter like
thunderbird has, it would be useful, if kmail users did not have to bother
about how to get that functionality into kmail.

Since spamassasin is too heavy for a lot of older hardware I would suggest some
tool like bogofilter. The package size is minimal and installing and setting it
up by default would get kmail en par with thunderbird in this regard."

NB I do not agree exactly with this wishlist, but it might be worth using PackageKit eventually to install bogofilter upon setting up a POP account. - Will
