Yeah but Kontact is a Qt/KDE application... ;)
That just means it's not _surprising_ when it gives you options which
allow you to make it behave how you want it to, rather than forcing the
user to conform to _its_ model.

KDE apps, including Kontact, force me to use the KDE look and feel, and
pretty much ignore the GNOME settings I am used to. So KDE is just as
well forcing _its_ model on you, just a different model.
Of course a KDE vs. GNOME flamewar is not going to fix the problem that
evolution is a good application but just needs some fixing by someone
with a lot of time :-)

I didn't knew that GNOME and KDE _should_ integrate ;-) so I don't get your point about KDE being forcing. Anyway I belive that David tried to point out that KDE lets *you* configure it fully as you want, while GNOME limits you because of all usability stuff (HIG and so on).

Anyway after I have tried Evolution, Kontact and Thunderbird and remained with Thunderbird.
