Re: [trinity-users] Move from Lenny and KDE to Squeeze and TDE

Hi,

In order to be able to help you, we probably need some more information.
What is your client software for email ? Are you using kmail ?
If so, I'd say it simply needs to copy the .kde/share/apps/kmail folder
from Lenny/KDE to the .trinity/share/apps/kmail of Squeeze/TDE (that was
what I done and it was all right) and you'll get your mails in kmail-
trinity. Maybe you will have to enter your account passwords again, but
that will be all, to my sense.
So some few questions 
 - how exactly did you "move" your emails ? (from and to folder names?)
 - is everything ok about your mails on your Lenny version, can you see
them all under kmail or whatever ?
 - is your user has the same name on both Lenny and Squeeze ?

Just tell us ;)

Regards

Pierre
