With API, dependency and feature freezes in place, the KDE team's focus is now on fixing last-minute showstopper bugs and finishing translation and documentation that comes along with the releases." Focuses of this release are Kwin support for OpenGL-ES 2.0 (oooh purty!), an interface refresh for Dolphin, and loads of other stuff.

Well, if we ignore the IMAP folder refreshing bugs and some exceedingly complicated interface bits, I like thunderbird ;)

As long as we also ignore their searching as well, then I like thunderbird too.

Unfortunately, I do need to search email frequently.

What's the problem with TB's searching ? I give you that the fact they have two search functionalities (one global, one in the currently examined folder) is quite confusing, but in my experience the local one at least works extremely well.

Also, Mozilla have recently released a new version of Thunderbird ("Thunderbird 5"). I'm playing with it currently. So far what I've noticed is that they finally use standard notifications on Linux. However, the settings are still a mess. Currently experimenting to see if the IMAP bugs have been fixed...

EDIT : No. When a message is in multiple folders and you delete it in one of them (typical example being the "unified folders" view, which I happen to like), it still remains visible in the left panel. =_= I wonder if Mozilla have such a thing as a bug reporting system for Thunderbird, though I doubt that they are not aware of this one.
