Hi Pablo,

I find Kontact better suited to my needs than Thunderbird, although I could live with that one despite its ugly new UI.
KMail has many little goodies like ML detection and expiry I can configure per-folder e.g. to trash all ML messages that are still unread after a couple of days, etc.

Ah, but that doesn't seem to involve invoking the external editor, right?

Yes, that's what I meant. I don't even see an "edit with external editor" menu action, actually, but if you know how to trigger that you can define a custom shortcut in /systemsettings/shortcuts and gestures/. In principle that works for any menu action that you can activate via a series of keystrokes.

That's also the impression I was getting when I played arount a bit with "atsar" and zpool iostat. Though with ZFSonLinux it is sometimes hard to say if the CPU load is in the application or in the filesystem drivers.

Gee, I must have set you off onto something. Hopefully we'll all gain something out of it :)
