If you're using the latest trinity version of kmail, I think you must
copy your configuration from kde3 to trinity:
$ cp -afv ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail ~/.trinity/share/apps/
$ cp -afv ~/.kde/share/config/kmail* ~/.trinity/share/config/

And you have to replace '$HOME/.kde' by '$HOME/.trinity' in
$ sed 's|HOME/.kde|HOME/.trinity|g' -i ~/.trinity/share/config/kmailrc

Alternatively, just copy the whole folder:
$ cp -av /home/lisi/.kde/* /home/lisi/.trinity/
(but it's going to erase new settings in trinity and you'll have to change
some other files)
(Another solution is to use a symbolic link:
$ rm -rf ~/.trinity
$ ln -sv .kde ~/.trinity
In this case, you'll have nothing to change.)

And if you fear mistakes (you should), don't forget backups:
$ cp -av /home/lisi/.kde /home/lisi/.kde.back
$ cp -av /home/lisi/.trinity /home/lisi/.trinity.back

Good luck.
