Might be an idea to include release levels of akonadi, kmail etc, you may get 
a better list of possible solutions.  I've got a script that runs on login 
producing a signature file for kmail that lists release levels, saves me 
repeating it in the body of the email.  

I've found that over the past months kmail has been solid with only the odd 
duplication - i no longer have filters acting on incoming emails, i apply it 
manually after the inbox has been populated and that reduced duplication. 

Qt: 5.9.1
KDE Frameworks: 5.37.0
KDE Plasma: 5.10.5
kwin 5.10.5
kmail2 5.6.0
akonadiserver 5.6.0
Kernel:  4.12.9-1-default
Nouveau:  1.0.15_1.2
