Quite a number of people on this list have suggested a Dovecot server. I 
notice the server on our website is Dovecot. I'm not sure I want to go through 
the learning curve there though to set one up locally. 

The 'mess' that has resulted from akonadi makes that db not equal to what I 
see on the file system at present. Trying to hunt for tools to look at the 
MySQL db in a sensible view. By that I mean to export all emails from akonadi 
in a structured layout, the same as the KMail folder heirarchy.

Then to use Beyond compare to see what is missing, extra,etc, from what is 
sitting on the file system.
