Eh, it was just all the little things -- I couldn't get it to look right 
(fonts, icons, etc) and I wasn't willing to spend the time customising 
it. I didn't need to do that with Kmail -- the default look just is 
nicer, in my opinion, although I realise that's a subjective feeling.

And I kept running into gotchas that annoyed me. Things like, when I 
would show all headers in a mail with the intention of copying them, I 
discovered that each line was a separate text control and you couldn't 
select text from two header lines simultaneously. Apparently you're 
expected to use a completely different interface, the View Source 
command, and select text from that. Grrr arggghhh.
