I'm a mutt-er, BTW :-)

Your best bet is probably to use an IMAP server to export from kmail and
import to Tbird. I recently had to move years of mail archives for one
of my users who thought it would be wise to move to gmail; I just pointed
to the gmail IMAP address and hey, presto, it was just like more folders.
I can't imagine, for those of us who wouldn't want to wash years of email
through gmail, that setting up a temporary IMAP server locally would be
too very hard.

Good luck!
