I have used a ~/Mail directory since I started with 8.2. In every
upgrade Kmail always recognizes the presence of that directory and uses
it instead of ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/mail without any need for change
in settings. It may adapt the *.index files at the upgrade, but it is
completely transparent and all messages are there with proper status
(read/unread, etc).

Wow, that's handy, because every time I upgrade, recovering my mail
from Evolution to Evolution is a right pain in the neck. It does not
support import of all data and settings from itself (seriously, that's
a pretty silly misfeature), so you have to import mbox by mbox, and
when you have a complex folder structure like I do...

Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong, I wouldn't be surprised.
