Hi Robin,

I am running kmail2/kde 4.9 for the 5th day now, after using thunderbird since 
april. So far, my findings are:

Lots of thing have improved, and kmail2 is usable, but have issues.

My filters most often works, but I get duplicates of messages sometimes. 
Tonight, for some reason not all messages were filtered.

I am plagued by the conflict resolution dialog, sometimes when using "classify 
as spam", and in rare occations when applying other filters or flags. I really 
think even having that thing is a proof of code design problems!

I have had two empty messages in spam, but I think turning off checking of the 
local storage (if you use such) solves it. I think that having that as a 
default is dangerous, it should not even be possible!

Address completion works, after hand editing some config files and restarting 
the system (restarting akonadi + nepomuk should do, but there is no sane way 
of restarting nepomuk that I know of)

All in all, I expect to continue using kmail2 now, because the benefits are 
many for me, using the rest of the pim suite (mainly addressbook and 
calendars), and because of the general integration with KDE.
