Well, you are the TB expert here
and therefore you should know that
Kubuntu installs the current version. But I checked it, it is 12.0.1.

1. The configuration page offers a start page URL? I thought TB is an
email clinet, not a browser.
2. The configuration page offers add-ons - again it looks too much like
a browser to me. One of the add-ons is adblock plus - what does that
have to do with email?
3. There is an option to accept cookies? Again, what does that have to
do with an email client?
Granted, those three points are not too important but at least it looks
unappealing to me.
4. I want to import mails from kmail. Well, I know that TB doesn't
understand maildir, so I copied some mails to a new mbox folder before I
started TB. But how can I import those mails? While there is an import
option, it doesn't seem to do anything - at least I couldn't convince it
to give me a file dialog to search for the mbox file with the mails I
Of course it isn't useful to continue testing at this point. I have a
lot of saved mails that I don't want to throw away. So obviously TB is
not usable for me.
