Which is why we are so grateful to Timothy and the other developers for

It is not maintained by the "official" maintainers.  But it is maintained and 
developed by Trinity and maintained by openSUSE.

Yes - the above makes no sense at all in this context, and your thinking is in 
error.  The clue - a large one - is in the name of the list.  

It is easier at this precise moment because there has been a major problem 
with Trinity's mirrors.  But Timothy (with, I hope some help) is working hard 
and most of the mirrors are now up again.  Unfortunately squeeze/main is not 
yet up, and it obviously contains trinity-KMail. 

I was surprised not to find it because a) I was surprised that it hadn't been 
chosen for David's CD (tho' I can see why not), and even more surprised when 
I couldn't find it because my first impression was that all the mirrors were 
back up. I was wrong, but they will be soon.  We were told"not before January 
1st 2012"  and almost all of them are now back up again.

So I shall soon be able to have my KMail.  (Or rather my husband will - and I 
think he is quite pleased not to have to cross that bridge yet.)

I even wonder whether you are a troll.  This thread had referred frequently to 
Trinity and never to KDE3.  So where did you get the KDE3 from??
