A fine but important point.  Thanks for clarifying it.

Suggestion:  kmails achilles heel is that its single threaded.  So, if 
you have it going out on the network to fetch your mail on a regular 
schedule, you will note that it is totally non-responsive, and this 
includes this composer, during this time.  It doesn't miss any 
keystrokes, but it can be 30 seconds to over a minute before the screen 
catches up to what you typed, and that to me is a major PIMA.

So my solution is to not setup an incoming account other 
than /var/spool/mail/$username.

So how do I get my incoming email?  Fetchmail on a 180 second cycle.

It uses procmail for the MDA.

But before procmail delivers it, it runs the incoming thru spamassassin 
and clamd, rerouting the detected viri to a /var/spool/mail/virii 
mailfile, and one relatives messages are delivered directly to her 
folder in kmails Mail directory.

At the time any file in var/spool/mail is closed, inotifywatch returns 
the name of that file, and if its my name, sends kmail a msg over dbus 
to go get the mail and sort it to the correct folders, including 
the 'spam' folder if spamassassin gave it 5 or more stars.  If it 
miss-sorts or miss-scores a good msg, I move that msg to the ham folder.
Shortly after midnight, a cron script runs sa-learn ham/spam on those two 
folders, nuking tha spam folders contents when it has been done.

So basically my job is very simple. I hit the + key to read the next 
message, replying to it if I think I can help.  Else I hit the + key and 
go read the next unread message.  Everything else is all done for me.  
Whats not to like?  Oh, I forgot, fetchmail sends mailfilter out first, 
which nukes some badass stuff off the server so it doesn't exist when 
fetchmail checks 3 seconds later.

Computers handle the drudgery a heck of a lot better than I do, so I 
write scripts to make them handle the needs a latex glove to touch  
stuff.
