Many users have found the new akonadified kmail2 simply not worth the 
headaches it is causing them, and have switched to something else.

The gtk-based claws-mail is quite a popular choice and what I chose here, 
to great effect. (Ironically, back in 2002 when I first switched to 
Linux, my mail client choice came down to the then sylpheed claws, now 
claws-mail, and kmail.  Had I made the other choice, I'd have never had 
to change back to it about a decade later.)

Others have found gnome's evolution or mozilla's thunderbird to be a 
better choice for them.  As they say, YMMV.
