To no avail.

I also tried to open KMail at the command line.

I failed, so I thought, and went on with other things.

Then KMail suddenly opened up, with all my folders and email, but no settings.

I started to put the various settings in, and to recreate my filters.
And then to sort out the mail, a large amount of which had landed
unsorted in the inbox.

I put my computer on this morning and opened KMail.  The settings I
put in yesterday evening are all there, as are the filters I set up
yesterday.  I have looked at the ~/Mail directory.  The emails that I
downloaded last night are there, as are the rest.

Why has KMail gone back to not using the ~/Mail?  And, more
importantly, how do I get KMail to use it?!
