Yes, KMail crashes more frequently than Windows 3.1.  However, if
used with IMAP (not POP3 and not offline IMAP) the crashes are not
serious.  99% of the time KMail is OK after a restart.  On rare
occasions one must force it back to consistency by deleting all the
files in ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/imap/ (most of which are dot files).

Since Evolution's downgrade, KMail is the only client I know of
that works well with hundreds of mail folders.  And for that I
choose to live with software that explodes whenever the network
times out.
