I've been using it on a 5 or 6 yo netbook with only 8Gb of RAM and using ZFS (itself a memory eater). With a bit of tuning of the fetching intervals it is slowish but perfectly usable without monopolising the machine.
That was PIM 4.13 though, to be honest. The current KMail depends on QtWebEngine which is itself a resource monster, so it has to be worse.

FWIW, the akonadi baloo agent serves to integrate PIM metadata with the baloo-based desktop indexing feature which otherwise does not depend on akonadi. The indexing itself can be a hog too.
