    This has been fixed today, I'm planning to submit the fix to KDE:Current later if nobody beats me to it.

    You can configure the Notes resource to store the notes wherever you want. To find out what is configured, enter KDE's systemsettings/"Configure Desktop"->Personal Information->Configure Akonadi resources, select the Notes resource and click on edit.

    Normally it should be ~/.local/share/notes/ or some subdirectory.

    Apparently (one of) your notes resource(s) points to a maildir folder, maybe because of the unsuccessful migration.
    As written above, verify the paths of all your akonotes resources. You can remove all of them, when the fixed package is in the repo, it should create a new one anyway and migrate your old notes.

    third if I create or modify a note knotes not always remember the creation or modification after reboot
    Could be related to the other issues.

    FYI, the fix is in KDE:Current already.
    So install all updates, and knotes should successfully migrate your old notes when you start it the next time.

    I still noticed one minor problem though: after the migration, knotes quits with an error message. But if you start it again then, it works fine and should show all your old notes...

    Nevertheless I would recommend to clean up your Notes resources/collections as well, as written earlier.

    yes, it shows my old notes properly and saved in a /home/user/.local/share/notes/9fXtfkX2hm/ I suppose random name folder... but,
    -if I open configure knotes I have three places like in the picture below but but configur desktop>personal information>akonadi resource configuration shows only two (/home/user/.local/share/notes/9fXtfkX2hm/ and /home/user/.local/share/notes/) and also they are not distinguishible ...

    --knotes don't preserve the title if you lock the note, if you create a new note, paste what you like inside, doubleclick on the title, add something before to the already proposed title that is a date, clock ok, the title is there, if you lock the note the title you added disappear

    manythanx, :-) ciao :-) pier...

    You can rename them either in KJots or in akonadiconsole.

    But KNotes, KJots, the Akonadi configuration module and akonadiconsole should all show the same resources/collections.
    Maybe you just overlooked the third one?

    What do you mean with "lock the note"?

    Kjots??? I have to inform about it...:-)

    may be the third one is the email??? now I'm on 13.1 with kde standard, I will check better on 12.3 with kde 4.13... :-)
    also becouse I'm planning to upgrade to kde4.13 also the 13.1, also becouse I think I cannot share knotes notes between kde standard and kde4.13.
    but the problem is that I cannot recognize in the picture above which note is related to which location or akonadi resource...
    ...by the way, kde 4.13 on 12.3 after baloo switch off seems to works very well, especially dolphin over smb connection seem faster than before...:-)

    I mean rightclick on title and choose LOCK, so the note is write protected...:-)

    KJots is another KDE note taking application as already mentioned, and also integrated into Kontact.
    It used Akonadi already in 4.11, so this would also be a way to share the notes between 4.11 and 4.13.

    But TBH, I never used that one.

    may be the third one is the email???
    Maybe.

    I would recommend to have a look in "akonadiconsole".
    Switch to the "Browser" tab, this should show _all_ your collections.
    Right-click on a collection and select "Folder Properties", you can rename it there, and you can get further information on the "Internals" tab.
    Check the "Internals" for all your notes resources, if there is one of them pointing to ~/.local/share/local-mail or similar, this would be the one to remove.

    If in doubt, post screen shots. First of the collection list in the "Browser" tab, then from the "Internals" tab of each collection.

    I mean rightclick on title and choose LOCK, so the note is write protected...:-)
    Aha. I can reproduce this here, looks like a bug.
    If you close the note after renaming and reopen it again, it will keep its title though.
