I am a long time kmail user. I have noticed significant improvment in
stability and the filtering of incoming mail. I use the filtering extensively.
Before the last release, at the beginning of a KDE session, filtering was OK,
but it slowed down with use. In the latest version, it is extremely fast, and
it doesn't get slower with use. The only "bug" I have found in this version
of kmail (5.5.2) is that an occasional "ghost" message will be in a folder and
can't be removed. I store emails locally via IMAP--one message per file--and
except for the ghosts, I am extremely pleased. I currently have over 126,000
messages stored and about 8 "ghost" messages. I searched through the
individual files that contain the e-mails and I can't find files for the ghost
If the attitude of the KDE folks is the problem, please remember that they are
not full time KDE programmers and customer service is probably not their
I don't know if you consider this a valid comparison or not, but:
In October 2017 (as I recall), my bank (which shall remain nameless) announced
that there would be a new version of the on-line access software coming out on
January 1st. Then, around January 10th they announced that the upgrade had
some unresolved issues, and would not be rolled out until February 1st.
February 1st arrived and passed. The new software was put in place on the
12th. Since then, I have been unable to login to my account. No help on the
screen. When I called last week, they said that they were ware of the problem
and were working very hard to resolve it. No apology. They can tell me my
balance over the phone, but that is about it. IMO, this is absurd.
