I am using Kontact; my KMAIL dir is around 682MB of messages.  I have 5 
different accounts that it checks periodically.  I was using evolution 
till last year but it kept crashing at random points during start up 
once my Mail dir got beyond 500MB (I did file bug report and gave 
several strace data etc.) so I switched to Kontact (which integrates 
the various KDE apps), so far no probs.

At times, I have found KDE apps behaving strangely but clearing it's 
respective settings under the ~/.kde directory usually clears the 
problem  (some data may have to reentered).  Have you tried it?
