    Default Kmail2 mail location found and got Kmail2 working

    Hi

    For reasons unknown (maybe it was just a reboot) I got kmail2 working. I could receive e-mails but not sent. I found under
    Settings=>Configure Kmail..click on "accounts", click folder "Sending"...you will find at the bottom "Default Domain" (!) this has to be the mail (provider) address eg mail.bigpond.com.au
    So I changed it to my domain and I could send e-mails.......So far so good


    With the help of some other forums I found the location of kmail2 folders

    ~/.local/share/.local-mail.directory

    Note (!) the fullstop (.) .local-mail

    This folder is hidden, so within dolphin you need to check "show hidden files"

    You will find that the file structure of kmail2 is different to file structure kmail1.

    The next step is to convert the files.....if you have any idea please let me (us) know
    In the meantime I will keep on searching.

    cheers

    Got it !

    Since I could open a kmail1 file with kmail2...

    I just tried to copy on kmail1 file from the sent-mail=>cur to the kmail2 sent-mail=>cur folder. it showed up in kmail2 and could be opened.

    So I copied the lot and my kmail1 inbox files accordingly.....worked !!!


    cheers
