Akonadi can use SQLite instead of MySQL, but it's not well-supported,
and you still need the Akonadi daemons running anyway.
Under the hood, the current version of KMail *is* a frontend to the
email features of Akonadi. Even interaction with mail servers is done
by one of Akonadi's daemons, not by the KMail process.
