Hi, Robin. While I periodically install and check the current iteration of 
KMail and KDEPIM4, I'm not optimistic that it will ever reach the level of 
usability as KDEPIM3. While my OS is OpenSuSE 12.1 KDE4, on all my systems I 
still run the KDE3 version of KDEPIM. 

It just works, which is not something I can say about KDEPIM4. KDEPIM4 still 
cannot deal with groups and lists, doesn't allow me to use my existing 
addresses and categories, and isn't, in general, an improvement. It certainly 
isn't any faster. 

It's not that I don't appreciate the effort and work that has gone into 
KDEPIM4, but don't regard the result as particularly useful compared to
