Some of my kmail was in file format, mostly the stuff so small it was a 
never mind.
I looked, the only choice I could see in what I assumed was a multi-
selector was MH.  Did I miss a plugin?

Somebody sent me a python script that I have used to make mailfiles back 
out of maildirs, so that has been done, output to the new drive, and those 
that were in mailfile form I just copied with cp, so its all in file format 
now, but I haven't rebooted to see if I can import them yet.

But now its time for me & the missus to find a nose bag, din-din, whatever 
to eat.  I'll swap drives and reboot when I get back.  We're both north of 
70, so the kitchen doesn't get used all that much.  I'm diabetic and she 
can't stand my cooking is the biggest problem.  She has COPD and only feels 
like cooking about one thing a week.  Usually something I shouldn't eat, 
like a pan of brownies.  I sample anyway, bad dog & all that. :)
