    Kmail is mostly a front-end for akonadi now, it is an integrated part of a more general-purpose groupware suite. It looks like this is intended as a more lightweight, dedicated mail client.

      But Trojita? I doesn't sound like mail.

      Well, Trojita reminds me of Trojan horses which sometimes gets spread by mail.
      Well, the name itself is "Trojit?", visit the project homepage. Since the Author is Czech, it has nothing to do with "Trojan". "Trojit?" in czech language means "Tripple" in English (female gender adjective). As you can see, there is number 3 in application logo and icon.

      Best regards from Czech Republic.

        I hope Trojita will be used to further improve KMail and dropped then. Why split?

          Because people have different kinds of needs and preferences? I don't see how Trojit? would be of any use to KMail considering that the one is based on Akonadi and the other is not.

          Unmaintained does not mean they don't need maintenance - as build breakage has to be fixed anyway - mostly by people not familiar with the codebase, lowering its quality even further.
          It's not part of KDE Software Compilation so nothing changes from the user, packager and bug hunting perspective.

          KDE is a community that developes Qt based applications and libaries. It also provides powerful infrastucture for developing these projects like mailing lists, wikis, code hosting, bug trackers, review boards, pastebins, IRC channels, donations, confrences... It would be handy if all serious open source Qt projects were hosted under KDE infrastucture as it would help their discoverability and bring likeminded people together.

            I'm pretty sure that you are the only one here who cares about the capitalization. Also, I never see quick time abbreviated, people just type out the name.

            I for one don't care if people use "QT" "Qt" "qt" or even "qT" when talking about the popular open-source framework.

              Trojita sounds like a good fit for the Razor-Qt project.

              No, I care about it.

                Oh wait...

                Well, lets look at Wikipedia's Comparison of Email Clients. It lists 50 clients. 11 of them have mail is an integral part of their name (so including, say, KMail, or WIndows Mail, but excluding, say, Eureka Email, which could just be called Eureka).
                You forgot mutt. woof woof!

                  Ah, but how is "Qt" pronounced?

                    So does it now become Kjita?
