Re: [SLE] Transferring Kmail

Historically it was in ~/Mail as it was just unix standard mbox

other mailers don't try to open our index files thinking they are

The new default is ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail, as Carl said.

When did/will this change? As have migrated each time, I've always had
my mail in ~/Mail. I did look in the dir you mentioned, and there is
something there, but definitely not my mail.

Can I assume that if mail is found in ~/Mail that's where it will stay?
Not that it matters that much, I'm just curious..
