17 SystemSettings -> Resources
19 Create the conventional addressbooks as files in
20 ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/resources - exactly as we did in KDE-3.5
22 In the list of types of resources, there are Akondai related item, just don't
23 use those, and kmail will use the file directly.

28 akonadi and nepomuk are not the same thing, not even remotely.
30 akonadi is a backend store for pim data (mail, addresses, etc). It is
31 application agnostic, so in theory at least Thunderbird, kmail and Evolution
32 could all use akonadi to get to the same data.
34 nepomuk and strigi are involved with desktop search and indexing all of your
35 data. It is similar in principle to Beagle on Gnome (but with bigger design
36 scope). There's no reason Nepomuk can't use the data presented by akonadi for
37 it's indexing, but it's not a requirement - it can just as easily index
38 conventional maildirs.
40 You can't avoid having akonadi, nepomuk etc pulled in somehow. Just don't run
41 them.
