In principle migration should be a matter of:
1.) Moving your mailbox from the old ~/.kde3 directory to the new
~/.trinity directory
2.) Replacing all instances of ".kde3" with ".trinity" in

Both those steps should be completed BEFORE starting TDE's kmail for the
first time--if kmail is launched without the changes, it might very well
rewrite your kmailrc file in response to not finding its mailboxes, and
make recovery a whole lot more difficult.  Needless to say it is a good
idea to back up your home directory before moving to a new system! ;-)
