When you get the Akonadi Self Test dialog, click on the error indications.  
When you do, the bottom of the dialog will indicates some suggestions, 
including a link to the userbase page with excellent troubleshooting tips.

I suggest that you go through them one at a time and try launching kmail 
again.  Some of the tips solve multiple problems.

As I observe it, akonadi seems fine.  I assume it works great on fresh 
installs.  It is the upgrade which was not handled well.  Most of us who 
frequent this and similar lists should be able to work through getting it 
working.  I pity the poor non-technical user, though. A final release will 
inevitably have unforeseen bugs, but it should mostly work out of the box 
before it loses its pre-beta designation.

Perhaps that's why kmail still doesn't use akonadi; unlike some other 
projects, I suppose they wanted to get it right before releasing it.
