Try muttzilla, which you'll find on Freshmeat. It's intended to integrate
mutt in the same way, but if you can use reasonable command line options
with KMail, it will work too.
Strange, Netscape provided an API to allow other mailers to work with it,
but only went that far... They could easily have provided a few
user-configurable options as well or instead.
Oh, that's right... Mozilla used to be proprietary software, and as we all
know, markets respond to inflexibility.

Seems it's getting popular too, for the number of KMail headers on this list
at least. So, what do you like about KMail?
