    Default How to move KMail 5 settings between computers

    Hello,

    Could anyone please tell me how I can move all my KMail 5 settings from one computer to another so that I don't have to enter all accounts, identities and configurations from scratch?

    Thank you.

    path = .local/share/local-mail
    path = .local/share/.local-mail.directory
    path = .local/share/kmail2
    path = .local/share/emailidentities
    path = .config/akonadi_imap_resource_1rc
    path = .config/akonadi_maildir_resource_0rc

    path = .config/akonadi/agent_config_akonadi_pop3_resource_3
    path = .config/akonadi/agent_config_akonadi_pop3_resource_3_changes.dat
    path = .config/akonadi/agent_config_akonadi_pop3_resource_4

    path = .config/akonadi/agent_config_akonadi_sendlater_agent_changes.dat
    path = .config/akonadi/agentsrc

    I have 5 pop mail accounts and 1 imap .

    NB : path = .local/share/.local-mail.directory is where all the mails are stored and this can be ___very___ heavy directory

    These files might also be important, depending on the case :

    path = .config/akonadi/agent_config_akonadi_indexing_agent
    path = .config/akonadi/agent_config_akonadi_indexing_agent_changes.dat

    path = .spamassassin
    path = .bogofilter
