All and none in particular:-) Yes, GTD is based on folders and
filtering, but email is just one of the possible inboxes. Let's say
that right now I' am _specifically_ interested in:

- handling tasks, to-do lists with sublists, and projects too, not
  just email

- with an interface that integrates as much as possible all of them,
  example: minimize (both management-wise and visually, ie ideally it
  should list everything in one view) the difference between a to-do
  item which is an email you got and a to-do item which is just a note
  you typed yourself on the pc. Yes, one could type an email to
  himself instead of a note, but what if there is no connectivity?

- with an interface that uses (=can be configured to mimic) as much as
  possible the "official" GTD terminology and process (google for
  images of "GTD flow diagram" to have an idea)

I'm also evaluating other apps in the same way, but can one do this in
Kontact? Interestingly, there was a GSOC project in 2005 just on this
topic, "GTD in Kontact", but it seems completely disappeared.
