Akonadi dsaster

I am using kmail, because it is, still, by far the best mail client I know. 
But the akonadi backend is absolutely not well functioning. I have to restart 
it daily, it often chokes. Even when running, it often makes kmail mega slow. 
I can click on a message header, but instead of showing it, kmails claims it 
is "retrieving folder contents". Not what I asked for...

Akonadi also appears to choke without any sign of that happening, apart from 
the lack of new mail. Then a restart is required.

But as I said, apart from that I really like kmail!

My 2c,
