That's a helluva lot of email!

I didn't use any 'import' function.
I just set Kmail's 'local' folder to use ~/mail, so you should be able
to tell it to use your /media/ubuslash email folder.
(Mind you, with that amount of email you would probably need to leave
it overnight to index!)
N.B. I use POP, not IMAP.
