* my mail provider doesnt supprt IMAP
* eating of mails is just one little issue with kmail, there are others like 
that it sometimes stops reacting for several _minutes_, ok that happens 
rarely but it does, and its memory requirements seem to increase with every 
new release while i havnt seen any usefull new features since years
* furthermore kmail depends upon a huge amount of useless bloated kde crap, i 
dont use kde, so if i kill kmail & kwrite i would have a significnatly nicer 
and faster system ...

ok, so why didnt i switch away from it long ago, well thats simple, lazyness, 
and its a lot of work as when i long ago switched from windo$ to linux i was 
too lazy to configure the mail stuff correctly, so everything was handled by 
kmail until recently, now its fetchmail->procmail->kmail at least but half of 
my filters still need to be converted from kmail to procmail ones
