Scrap your head, take a day off kmail and then look for a better mail-program. T-Bird for sure is not a prime equivalent and then IMAP on top with your tremendous bunch of mails. I'd advise you to thoroughly study what Claws Mail has to offer and how it looks and feels with all the mail stored on your own PC, no IMAP. In the now 3 years, that I have kicked kmail into the wastebin and run CM, there never was even a minor flaw. Regards.
