my apologies to you Kevin if you are indeed a KDEPIM developer,
something I had not noticed. Your signature states KDE Dev, but not
specifically what parts.
Obviously being a dev of another piece of KDE does not make you a guru
of all the other bits and pieces but the comments he makes is the best
clue I have seen so far as to why this function is gone.
I will go a mile extra next week (slow internet at home) and
download/install Kub Beta w 12.04 in a virtualbox machine, make a fresh
KMail user and see if it then works. If it still does not work I can
only consider it broken, at least in Kubuntu w KDE 4.8.1 and apparently
OpenSuse w KDE 4.8.x
