What I fail to understand is why, if KMail doesn't do what he wants, he 
doesn't just use a different email client.

There are things not in KMail that are in other clients, and that I would like 
to have.  But I love KMail.  And when I deserted - briefly ;-) - because I 
thought my very high opinion of KMail might be purely that it was much better 
and easier to use than AOL software - I soon came home with my tail between 
my legs.

KMail is closer to what I want than any other email client that I have tried.  
So I'll stick with it - that is until I am a good enough coder to write my 
own email client to my own specifications ;-).
