as a long time claws-mail user I converted my husband's Kmail to
claws-mail because the akonadi server wouldn't start and so on and so

I used a script to convert the Kmail mailbox format ready for
Claws-mail and it was excellent. Somewhere on the web site!

Then I made a few filters and showed him how to make filters and
organise his mail and have provided no further assistance. He is
managing it well without it.
