Have you considered using imap?  Works fine with mutt and kmail, you can use 
procmail for filtering (or sieve, if you use cyrus), and you don't have to 
worry about index files, et. al.

Oh, and PGP/MIME works fine, you just need to add the right plugins.  There 
should be some instructions lying around somewhere.  A google search for 
debian&aegypten&kmail should do the trick.
