Thanks for the encouraging information.

I would highly appreciate any improvement of kmail2 compared as to it is in 
jessie, especially through backports. Are there any plans to upload a newer 
kmail2 into jessie-backports?

kmail2 is currently unusable for me. A "Could not create collection" error, 
maybe 305987, prevents kmail to do the initial sync of disconnected imap.

@Martin: Have you tried to build the latest kdepim as debian package (e.g. 
by copying the debian folder of kdepim as in jessie)? Would be good to have 
a (temporary) kmail2 solution w/o /usr/local installation. Which packages 
did you rebuild? I presume akonadi, KDEPIMLIBS, KDEPIM-RUNTIME and KDEPIM?
