I run a usable version of Kmail under Debian Wheezy. Nevertheless, I am 
concerned with what my Kmail future holds. I decided to take control of 
things. I have a few gig of mail stored, so I installed dovecot and set up a 
local IMAP server. All my saved mails are now in an IMAP folder in my home 
directory. Thuderbird does IMAP. I had exim set up to use a smart host for the 
slrn news reader anyway (it was already there for cron to mail me). All my 
outgoing mail now goes through sendmail. Next I got fetchmail working which 
now sends all mail to my local inbox.

Now it does not matter which mail client I use and switching (except for my 
contacts) will be simple. I'll figure out the contacts when I have to.
