I had to update my old system, (Kubuntu 6.06), and because the

kmail would not import the older kmail files. They are in the /Mail
folder, and are available, but the subject line is not readable.
I have tried importing the mail files with Kmail, Thunderbird, and
SeaMonkey, with no luck.
I installed the original Kubuntu HD in another computer, and I can
read the files, but that doesn't solve my problem.
Does anyone have any way to successfully import the older files to
my new system? Would it work to install another, older, Kubuntu system
and import the files that way? I can't just dump the system and start
again and there are too many files to do it manually. ( over 40,000 )
There should be an export/backup feature in your older version of kmail.
So, from the machine with the older version, export it and copy that to
your new machine and see if it will import. You might try the KDE
website to see if there is a how-to export/import from an older version
to a newer version as well. Ric
Thanks, I'll have a look. I had been using sync to back up my system,
so the files were the same as the originals.
Good luck! Like you, I keep everything worth keeping.
