[opensuse] Fed up with Kmail2

I am finally fed up with Kmail2. This piece of software is as buggy as it gets and regularly messes up or looses mails. Even for the longterm pain-used Linux user it's too much.

- Mails don't show up in the inbox although they are on the IMAP server for hours
- Sent mails are sometimes saved in the configured IMAP folder, sometimes in local folders and sometimes Kmail shows them in the IMAP folder but strangely no other program can find them there
- Kmail forces to send GPG signed messages as PGP/Mime, what lots of clients which are used in enterprise and governemt environments can't handle and show empty messages
- The latest fun - if I deselect "sign message", Kmail2 still tries to sign the attachments with PGP/Mime, which breaks the attachments. Even Kmail2 can't open them from the sent folder any more

@Opensuse Team:
I have started using Linux in 1996, my first SuSE was 5.2. So I'm really used to rough roads but what you did with 12.1 is the worst quality I have ever seen from SuSE in over 10 years! If I wouldn't be so used to the SuSE structure and Yast, I would have changed distribution and I'm still considering it.
