If you are using the K Desktop Environment (KDE) rather than the Ubuntu default GNOME desktop, you will also have KMail installed. As with Balsa, it will not take users of Outlook Express or Mozilla Mail long to get used to the KMail interface. Some useful features found in KMail are the choice of mbox or maiidir formats, improved filter creation, the ability to sort mail into threads, and the ability to apply filters at the MTA. Figure 8.11 shows the KMail email program. KMail offers IMAP access; extensive filtering; mbox and maiidir formats; and the ability to easily integrate MTAs such as Procmail, Spamassassin, or custom processing scripts.
