Question kmail 1.6 (kde 3.2.1) ignores my .Mail dir

I've just installed Libranet and updated kde to 3.2.1. I was already running kde3.2 in mandrake 9.2 and had kmail 1.6 running.

Now when start kmail, it get ALL the set-up (mail accounts and passwords) and retrieves my mail but doesn't show any of the preexistent local folders.

I've checked and none of the files have been destroyed as far as I can see but kmail just ignores them.

Permissions are normal and my login owns the files. Is there an option to show/hide local folders ?

Thanks all !

Correct me if I am wrong but I think I have found what it was :

The debian package makes that kmail 1.6 still uses the ~/Mail/ directory rather than the new kde default. So if you are upgrading from debian, you won't have any mail folder migration problem.
