We have so many ways to access email. Gone are the days of the desktop email client being the only route, and gone are the days of having to track down obscure IMAP and SMTP settings to get mainstream services to work.
We expect to be able to send and receive emails seamlessly to our phones, tablets, PCs and, before long, probably our clothes and fridges. We expect everything to stay in sync and – if we’re using a mainstream email service like Gmail or Yahoo! – we think it should just work.
Does KMail – the default Email client shipping with KDE – come up to the mark? Despite the ubiquity of web-based email and email apps, Desktop email clients still have their uses.
Kmail can be installed on pretty much any Linux distro and desktop – though it’ll work best with KDE as it’s designed to be integrated into the desktop.
