[kdepim-users] Mail transfer doesn't work

I have mail, directories and filters on my old computer that I want to
bring to my new one. The old one used Slackware 12.0 with KDE 1.9.7
and kde 3.5.7. The new one uses kmail 1.9.10 with kde 3.5.10.
I brought the entire /home/safe directory over from the old system via
nc and put it in a different directory called /home/safer. I can get
at my emails in //home/safer. I can read this email on the new system
if I give a second password.
Now I want to transfer the whole shebang, messages, folders and
filters to my new /home/safe user. But all attempts at importing the
contents to /home/safe fail. Either I get nothing or I get messages
that disappear as soon as I access them.
Given these two directories on my new system how do I get everything
form A to B and still have everything keep on working? Either the
import feature doesn't work or I am not using it correctly.
I have some older emails in a directory called Mail that I would like
to resurrect also. How do I import them successfully?
All responses appreciated.
