For many reasons you may need to backup Kmail and other assorted applications within Kontact. This short tutorial will explain how to perform this.

The following directories for e-mails need to be copied to a safe location (compress and or archive them if you wish, just stay organized)

for emails, you have to back two folders and one file:

/home/username/.Mail or it may be /home/username/.mail

for kadressbook the directory to backup is /home/username/.kde/share/apps/kadress

Be sure to place these files back in their appropriate folders when the time is ready.
