Ummm.. that is.. it's that way in 4.4.... is Stan using 4.3.5?  Is it
different there?

This is kde 4.3.5, because that's what the DVD installed. I have not had
the time to venture into far-reaching upgrades, because I am spending an
enormous amount of time on simply trying to get things to be usable.

Which is likely to be time not so well spent. There were literally
thousands of bugs opened on KDE4.3 and a significant number of them
were fixed on the way to 4.4 and 4.5Beta. Some of those bugs included
adding missing functionality.

I haven't used 4.3 in a very long time because of this.

Rule 1 with KDE4... Don't try to make it KDE3. That will not work.
you will end up being totally frustrated and annoyed.

Rule 2 with KDE4... upgrade to the latest Factory build. It's worth
it, and it's stable. A significant number of the annoyances in the
4.2 and 4.3 versions have been fixed. There are still more to go, but
the desktop is VERY usable in the 4.4 and up versions.

Rule 3 with KDE4... see Rule 1. KDE4 works differently than KDE3. It
is NOT KDE 3.6.

As for the KMail settings, it's possible to fiddle with the options to
get the old flat view back. I know it's there because I've done it.
It's in the Tools > Configure KMail options menu somewhere. That
combined with some right clicking here and there, and I had it back to
the flat view.... what those clicks were though, I cannot remember.
