The discussion of the following problem and suggestion should
be moved to kolab-devel and to kde-pim or kmail-devel I would say.
Because this is not directly related to the format, but to a general problem
with how to handle incoming mail and several ways to get them.

Proko2 needs a funcational windows client, 
thus for windows a solution is needed.
If this change would solve general KMail problems
then it is desirable for Proko2, because it helps Joon on the windows side.

independent from the format and Outlook.
