This is interesting; would you please expand?

In the past, whenever I have upgraded Suse from one version to another (ie a
clean instal of the new version) I have been able to save
my /home/myname/Mail file to a floppy and then simply insert it into the new
OS and after correcting the ownership everything worked fine. That is until
9.3 when I lost most of my mail folders - some transferred, some didn't.

I tried importing but the import menu allows you to import from evolution and
other MTAs but not a previous version of Kmail. Could you please suggest a
blow by blow howto? Moving e-mail safely from one version to another is
important to me. Many thanks.
