i currently have numerous accounts in one instance of kmail but iwant to
split them up so i don't mix home/work/mailing lists etc hence asking
about activities rather than splitting them via different logins.
but thanks for your comment

as far as i know, you can't have "different instances" of kmail, with
different configurations. any kmail you open while logged into your user
account will have the same configuration, i.e., mail servers, mailing
lists, etc., under any activity.

what you can do is choose not to update IMAP servers automatically and keep
the folders folded up while you don't want to deal with them, and update
those folders manually only.

to do what you want i'm afraid you'll have to use different applications.
i'm using opera mail, per example, for mailing lists and forums (NNTP), and
kmail for my personal mail. sometimes i open thunderbird or evolution and
connect them to mail servers i manage remotely, but usually i just use
alpine via SSH for that.

Thanks Phani. That answers that. damn though as that would have been the
perfect use of activities for me.
