Trinity now uses other files than KDE 3, and the files have been renamed. 
Settings are in .trinity , not .kde .

I have never tried copying and renaming the files, but I would expect 
problems. Also you seem to imply you want to update an older Debian with KDE 
3 to Jessie - I doubt this will work well, as very big changes have occured.

What's more, if I remember well, it was recommended to remove KDE 3 completely 
prior to installing Trinity to avoid conflicts (but that may have been only 
for older Trinity versions).

I have copied and edited kmail settings in the past, but this involved editing 
some config files.

So I would install a fresh Debian 8 with Trinity (I would do this on new 
partitions while keeping the old install until everything works as expected) 
and set up Trinity from scratch.
