Thank you.  I am not sure you are using Debian Buster or kmail 5.9.3 but your 
suggestion was very helpful as it caused me to realize that I had to "expand all 
groups" before highlighting the emails and then to actually read the kmail 
directions for a change, where I learned that after the emails are highlighted one 
types "m" to move them. I also learned that on my 8 gig memory machine, I had to 
break the emails down by month for akonadi to work, and even then akonadi 
"closed unexpectedly" several times.  As I have about 1500 emails in each 2018 
month, and as the process is quite slow, I was only able to get 3 months done 
tonight, but at least now I know how to do it.

Thanks again.
