I am not doing GTD on Kontact - use it only home and not find it
necessary (yeah, I know it is against one of GTD principles - sue me ;)
so don't know exactly but:

I am using GTD in work with Outlook. After trying several special
designed plugins resorted to plain Outlook with several twists in

- use to-do view as default
- create special categories for GTD
- finished to-dos vanish automatically
- everything else is just accessory to to-do lists

After quick test it is not impossible to do the same with Kontact. To-Do
module has lower usability(*) than its Outlook counterpart but all
necessary features are there. 

Note: I am using KDE3 version - in KDE4 To-Do module
looks better (not using it due to some exotic bug with scrolling :( ).

1. More clicking to perform simple tasks, eg. cration and assigning of
2. Better category sorting and organization.
