switching from KMail to Evolution

matthias.meyer
I like to switch from KMail 5.9.3 to Evolution 3.30.5-1.1.

I've already installed Evolution in my Debian/KDE environment.
Unfortunately the menu "File/Import/data and configuration from old programs"
informs me that he was looking for data for Pine, Netscape,iCalendar and KMail
but nothing found.
I'm very sure to have ~5GB Mails in maildir format in $HOME/KMail/.

How I can import my mails into evolution?

Thanks in advance
AthLux

Evolution only recognizes KDE 4 directories:
* $HOME/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail - for mail
* $HOME/.kde4/share/apps/kabc - for contacts

In 3.36 this would be answered under "Help > About".

Cheers,
andre

I moved my mail backup data to $HOME/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail
meyer@AthLux:~$ du -xh --max-depth=1 $HOME/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail
749M    /home/meyer/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail/.Firma.directory
16K     /home/meyer/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail/Privat

4,0K    /home/meyer/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail/.inbox.directory
4,9G    /home/meyer/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail

but Evlolution (3.30.5-1.1) still not found any old mail program data.

Any other way to import maildir from KMail to evolution?
Thanks

        Hi,
I would try to create a new temporary Maildir account in Evolution [1]
and point it to the copy of the ../kmail/mail/ directory, which should
show you all those mails. You can copy then under On This Computer or
elsewhere in Evolution. I'd probably not keep the extra Maildir account
in Evolution after you've the mails "imported".
        Bye,
        Milan

[1] In menu File->New->Mail Account->Server type=Maildir->choose the
folder "..kmail/mail/"  and finish with 'sendmail' or 'None' sending
server.
