    Kmail: How do I import settings?

    I wrote another forum before this one about losing my user's gui. I'm trying to import that user's kmail account settings to a different user, which I just recently made. What files do I need access to and also, how do I import the accounts into kmail under the new user's settings?

    Is there a simple, cut and paste, files to a different directory and just change ownership?

    You should just have to copy the mail folder. In old kmail, that folder is (I believe) ~/mail or maybe ~/kmail. In newer kmail, it's ~/.mail. Then change ownership and you'll have it.

    Can't get this to work - with TheBAT! there is a place in "settings" to point the system to where the mail folder is. Does Kmail not have this?

    (Kmail 1.9.1 KDE 3.5.1 Suse 10.1)
