When moving from 3.5 to 4 there is no need to import anything - and from what 
I've read of other people's experiences, importing is far from perfect.  Since 
you are importing, that implies that you still have copies of the original 
files - which should solve your problem.  

You didn't say whether this is a clean install, or one where 3.5 and 4 are 
both installed.  The trick is to get your original ~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc 
into the current ~/.kde(4)/share/config/kmailrc.  Rename your current one to 
kmailrc.old and paste the original one in its place.  It should work, complete 
with filters.

New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature?  Add it to UserBase
