This is frustrating. I'm using Kmail on FC2, and the button doesn't exist on 
Kmail 1.6.2 (using KDE 3.2.2-14.FC2.legacy Red Hat)

I've just looked on Debian Etch on the other machine, which is using Kmail 
1.9.5 (Using KDE 3.5.5) and that has the button to change icon.

I don't suppose there is a hope in hell of updating KDE on FC2 without 
screwing my FC2 install up completely.

I do have 2 installs of FC5 that are using KDE 3.5.5 on the same machine as 
the FC2 install, but I'd need to transfer all the mail from FC2 to FC5, plus 
all the bookmarks from Konqueror to FC5, and have no idea how to go about 

I do have a couple of FAT partitions that I use for backups, so I'll 
experiment with copying the email to the FAT partition, and then back to the 
FC5's Kmail. Not sure how to deal with Konquerors bookmarks though.

Problems, problems. It all makes life interesting.

Any suggestions Kevin on avoiding losing the mail, and bookmarks while moving 
them would be very welcome.
