[kdepim-users] importing maildir

I'm trying to migrate my local mails from one kmail to another.
I exported the mail to an bz2 archive.

If I try to import the archive I end up with local-folders/inbox/local-
folders/inbox structure. Moving those folders to back to toplevel where they 
belong (with lots of subfolders and mails) around seems to confuse akonadi so 
much that at some point I can't move some folders anymore. Also a lot of mails 
are marked as unread although they were all marked as read before and if I 
check the maildir directly, all are in the cur folder (in the archive).

If I try to just point local-folders to the (extracted) archive, the folders 
are at the correct place, but now all mails are marked as unread! Is this a 
bug or a feature?? And is there a way to mark all mails as read? (There are 
lots of subfolders)
