Istr that the default location for the 'root' kmail folder has changed in TDE; 
in KDE it was ~/Mail but iirc it has been moved to somewhere in the 
~/.trinity folder.  I had to edit ~/.trinity/share/config/kmailrc to set it 
back to ~/Mail (as this was an NFS mount on my server and I didn't want to 
have to change it).

Have a look in the kmailrc file - search for the string "[General]" and then 
check to see where 'folders[$e]' is pointing.
