Where is the email folder, open Suse 12.1?

Where is the email folder located in Kmail, openSuse 12.1? It looks like a different location that in 11.4.

I use Thunderbird, but a scan of the internet came up with these for kmail.


or in (if you use akonadi)


~/ always means your /home/username folder and anything that starts with a period is a hidden file. You can use Dolphin to look at these but you must turn on the ability to view hidden files.

Thank You,

Both of these pathways point to kontact data from Suse 11.4. I’m still not finding new files since upgrading to 12.1.

I found another tidbit here. Is it any value to you?

While upgrading openSuse from 11.x to 12.1 kmail migration failed.
After a lot of (half-)failed migration trial an errors I found out:
there is a menu option to import messages.
File/Import messages
choose: import maildirectories and mailfolders of kmail
and select de mailfolder p.e. inbox, ( not de underlying cur directory)
p.e. .kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail/inbox
check also for hidden directories. One of my mailfolders started with a dot.
N.B. Translation might be wrong, I use dutch version.

Thank You,

Your emails will be in ~/.local/share/.local-mail.directory
