If you migrate to a separate machine or change E-mail client, I would urge
you to use that as an opportunity to upgrade to Thunderbird, which I am
very pleased with. I ditched KMail some months ago.

All my settings, mail, filters, themes, extensions and customisations reside
under ~/.thunderbird/ . In fact, only 5-10 minutes ago I fiddled with a JS
files under that location and changed the introductory phrase for replies.
Thunderbird is highly customisable and I heard great things about version
1.5, which I think is now a release condidate at the moment. I still use

My 2 pennies,
