How to move kmail mails from one system to other?

The problem is like this

I have ~/Mail/ dir which has all my mails.
I use Kmail for viewing mails.

Now I copied the entire ~/Mail dir to other system and tried opening it using Kmail

The folders are shown properly
But when I click on any message it says

No subject and the mail contents are not displayed.

Note: I have alsi copied .kde/share/config/kmailrc file to the new system.

Kindly give me some pointers
