I only get this kind of slowdown when I am piping through Spamassassin. I 
attribute that more to Spamassassin than Kmail. There have been a lot of 
improvements in speed in the more recent versions of KDE. I heartily 
recommend upgrading. The fastest yet is KDE 3.2, but that's still in beta and 
has lots of bugs. KDE 3.1.4 is very stable, though, and should be faster.
