Since 4.4.1 is going to be available any day now you may wish to wait rather 
than experiment with work-arounds.  It's likely that the delay you are seeing 
is due to database searching - a bug that has been corrected in 4.4.1.

Do you normally read your mail within Kontact?  For the cpu usage problem, 
have you tested whether KMail uses as much CPU when stand-alone as it does 
when run within Kontact?  I'm of the opinion that it doesn't, and that there 
is some other problem in kontact that is affecting this, so I'd like to know 
your observations on that.  I'm passing info to the developers as I find it.
