I would be rather surprised if the new KMail couldn't handle things as you
want (though I haven't fully tried it), however, this will not help you if
you do not use X. I think that it is slightly unreasonable to expect to be
able to keep two email accounts separate on your local machine and yet
demand to be able to access both through a single instance of your MUA. To
me, it would seem far more logical to access both local mail boxes through,
if not separate accounts, then through separate instances of your MUA.
