Farewell KMail2

    I've been testing the new akonadi based KMail2 and I got dissapointed. My last version tested was from KDE 4.7.0 and now, I decided to change to another software for productivity reasons.

    The main reason for this change is that KMail fails to mark messages as read and it fails to differentiate read messages from unread (for example, like previous KMail did, having different colours for read and unread ones).

    I've already posted a bug against it (KDE bug #276893), but I didn't receive any feedback from developers as of today.

    So I finally decided posting an image wich will show this problem: KMail does not mark ANY message as read, so it is hard to keep your messages up to date, since I have to remember which messages I have read and which I have not.

    My last hope is that they take seriously this severe blockstopper bug as soon as possible... In the mean while, I will be using another software for managing my emails, so.... After several years... farewell KMail2
