64 or 32 does not mater. Either move the whole ~/.trinity folder to the new maschine, or be more selective.

For kmail do a "find . -iname kmail\*", to get all the files an folders. You'll need at least:
The Folder, where your mails are stored in:
	cat ~/.trinity/share/config/kmailrc|grep folders=

You might also need the tdewallet, if you stored the passwords there:

For knode .. I've never used it, so ....

Please write down the passwords for your email accounts prior to moving, 'cause that was a source of surprises for me :-)



Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.
