I don't recall a dbus problem, but the akonadi problem yes.

I had a similar problem that also involved KOrganizer and Kontact.
Unfortunately I didn't record the exact steps I took to resolve the
issue - I basically followed information on the debian kde mailing list
(last year).

Shouldn't be a problem, depending on what else you have chewing
resources. IMAP can also slow things down.

I don't know. I use akonadi-backend-mysql but I haven't tried the others.

IMAP or POP?  If IMAP I would expect it to be slow, in which case I'd
check my settings and also include the possibility of remote factors
(your email provider).

If IMAP, check your settings - the process you describe may involve more
network activity than immediately obvious.

Sorry, nothing. Try the debian kde mailing list?
