(what Akonadi is and is not)
it is important to note that Akonadi does NOT store user data. It caches it. The basic storage is still the traditional format, be it an online server (imap) or local files (ical calendar files).
Akonadi works with Nepomuk, in that it feeds Nepomuk with certain information about it's data.
