To keep any mail you'd need to copy over your ~/Mail directory and for email
address' you'll need a directory in ~/.kde which I believe is called kabc but I
can't check to be ceetain if that's the correct name right now.

Usually when I install a new slack system I just copy over my entire .kde
directory to save all my settings for all aps but kde in slack is set up just
as kde developers intended some other distros modify to suit and I can't say if
that is the case with ubuntu
