Hi Alvin:

Thanks a lot for your reply!

O.k., I installed that version through launchpad & apt-get, and it *did* start, but I had no access any more to calendars and contacts, and error messages coming from Akonadi instead.  No idea how to configure that part.  Can you give me any pointers?  Thanks!

I then tried to roll back the changes, as I needed to do some work (really... ;-), but now the old kontact package complains that an imaps process terminated unexpectedly - i.e. I now have no access to the server any more.  And, as usual, I didn't back up my .kde folder before.  Arrgh!

Thanks for the link, the symlink of the ca certificates package sounds promising.  Couldn't test it yet, though, as my setup seems to be completely broken now...

Best, Albrecht.
