[TriLUG] What are other Kmail users doing?

I've been a relatively happy Kmail user since 2003. Yeah, it's too
big, too crashy, and it's part of KDE, but its features are *exactly*
what I need in a mail client.
I'm on Ubuntu 11.04 and cannot transition to Ubuntu 11.10 until I
figure out what to do about Kmail, because Ubuntu 11.10's Kmail is
Kmail2, which requires storing data in Akonadi, and is also tied even
more intimately than Kmail with nepomuk and D-Bus. If I were a KDE
enthusiast who used email as a part of his Personal Information
Manager (PIM), this would all be great news. But all I want is an
email client that can have many hierarchical mailboxes, so all this
stuff means nothing but more complication and fragility to me.
Trouble is, with a hierarchy of over 100 mailboxes (one is for
TriLUG), some in mbox and some in maildir format, migration to another
client is difficult and probably requires heroic human intervention.
For anyone else who is/has been in the situation I describe, what
did/are you doing?
