Yes, I wanted to suggest that as a workaround one could use fetchmail to 
download the mails, procmail for local delvery and kmail for reading and 
writing.

But some users have strong objections against a daemon fetching their mail, so 
maybe an other client gives a better feeling ... where one has to keep in 
mind that changing from maildir to mailbox format bears its own pitfalls like 
loosing any mail in one dark black moment ;-)
