That might not be necessary -- my KMail and KMail2 kept mail in maildir
(formerly mbox) format in ~/Mail.  IIRC Akonadi was used only for
indexing (though it probably did keep an entire copy of all my mails in
a database). Perhaps setups vary, but if yours is like mine, then you
can just migrate the maildir folders/mbox files using standard tools
and forget about the Akonadi database.
