    Default Importing mail etc into Kontact KDE4


    I would like to import my mail etc. from Kontact KDE3 to Kontact KDE4.
    Which directories are used to hold the KDE3 stuff?

    Thanks

    hi,
    if i'm not mistaken all your mails are in:
    /home/yourname/.kde/share/apps/kmail

    You'll also need /home/yourname/.kde/share/config/kmailrc but, if my
    experience is anything to go by, that won't be enough. There must be some
    other files out there that I've forgotten about since the last time I went
    through this nausea.

    Why can't the KDE4 version do the importing automatically? I've had to do
    this hand-copying a number of times in the past whenever there's been a
    change to the Kontact entities and am ********** annoyed that a better system
    hasn't yet been devised.

    I just today "migrated" Kontact from 3.5 to 4.1. What a coincidence
    :-)

    This is what I copied from my old system:
    ~/Mail, of course
    ~/.kde3/share/apps:
    akregator knode knotes kontact kmail korganizer
    ~/.kde3/share/config:
    akregator*
    kmail*
    korganizer*
    email*
    knode*

    Copy those files to ~/.kde4/share/...

    New Kontact now works with old data and settings, but I'll probably
    need some more files to copy, which will be revealed while using it.
