Plain wrong. Even your statements "kmail is unusable" and "I've used it for 
nearly a decade" are contradicting. If you keep using "imho unusable" client, 
it is your problem.

It is perfectly usable, I have also used it for 6 years (POP3 and IMAP), lost 
a few mails. Yes, it does crash sometimes, it does have connection problems on 
unreliable connections, but come on, it is a pretty nice mail client, 
restarting it usually solves most issues. If you hate kmail, switch to 
something else. Plain simple.
