That seems so far away but I wonder if it does not depend on the way 
one "changes" one's distribution.

I think that when I first installed TDE it "took over" my ~/mail directory.  
However, if I install a distribution from scratch, it sets it in .trinity, so 
I one time moved my mails and edited the config files and since then I just 
copy them.

I usually don't "upgrade" a distribution, I use the "japanese temple" method: 
I setup the new system in parallel to the "productive" one, slowly move what 
has to be moved, and when I feel the new version is better I change boot 
priority. Once the "old" system has no more been used for a few months, it 
becomes a free place for the next "new" system.

So could it be that people who just upgrade their systems still have mail in 
the old place, but those who installed new had to migrate?

Have a nice day,
