The only serious (ie. that could cause data loss) bug is with online imap 
accounts and local spam filtering. That is still not fixed, unfortunately 
the fix I tried didn't work. In that case you have two choices:
- use a disconnected imap account (that just means mail bodies are 
completely downloaded)
- do not use client-side spam filtering, but use sieve scripts server side

Filtering on disconnected IMAP and POP3 account apparently works fine, with 
an ocassional *temporary* message duplicating in the destination folder 
(temporary, as a refresh on the folder usually removes the duplicate, it is 
just a duplicate in the "index", not on the storage/disk) and filtering not 
working for some messages that were downloaded after a resume from 
hibernation. The filtering starts to work after the first manual 

I will look at both bugs at one point, latest at the KDEPIM sprint in
