Hi Sverre & Mark,

Thanks for the quick replies and the explanation about kmail2 issues. Looking 
at the config file in wip/akonadi I did wonder if it was defaulting to sqlite, 
but reading some of the kmail threads it seemed that sqllite caused a few 
problems. Maybe this is no longer true and I would be happy to get rid of 
mysql as I tend to use postgresql for other applications... I'll poke around 
in my akonadi config and get it to use sqlite and have another play tonight. 

It sounds like its probably worth waiting for another few months for the next 
release point before trying kmail2..
