I've decided to stick with kmail, but on a fresh installation on another 
disk. Is this tool likely to help me with the rest of the job of moving to 
a new setup? The program imported the mail files nicely, but what about all 
the other things? Filters, expiry times, signatures, identities and so on?

I tried copying the [Filter #n] sections from the old kmailrc to the new 
one, but that had no effect so I restored the previous kmailrc. I don't 
want to copy the whole file because kmail was not threading properly and 
I'd rather start afresh - but what a lot of labour!
