Ever since migrating to Kubuntu 11.10 and the forced migration to kmail2 with the akonadi backend I am having serious performance problems. Is there some sort of maintenance or cleanup task that I can run to optimize it.

I have large maildir based emails dating back to 2000 and would really like to keep having all around but worst case I might have to back it up and start fresh. Any tips to avoid this?

"While overall, Kmail2 is actually quite good imo, the migration process is not."

The Kubuntu Forums has: Topic: Upgrading to 11.10 and Kmail2 Migration Issues /1/.
