It's been a while since I used/wrote any Perl, but after hving a look
at Paul's script, there doesn't seem to be any code there to use the
(akonadi) MySQL database. It parses through the KMail folder structure
" In SC 4.4, KAddressBook became the first application to start using
the Akonadi framework. In SC 4.7, KMail, KOrganizer, KJots, etc. were
updated to use Akonadi as well."
"KDE SC 4.7 was released on 28 July 2011."
The latest version of Paul's script is 25/02/2007
Those articles simply confirm that Akonadi came after Paul's script.
If I use the KMail data "as is", because there are data discrepancies
(between KMail and Akonadi database), I will loose emails. Have only
checked 2 folders and both had differences.
What I can "see" in Kmail isn't in the Kmail folder structure, it is in
the Akonadi db MySQL database. Therefore, I need to get that sorted
first, to remove any data discrepancies.
