Hallo Hans,

I've always successfully synced the kmail (Trinity) data directory between system with this command:
rsync -avuh --delete $HOME/.trinity/share/apps/kmail/ user@otherhost:.trinity/share/apps/kmail

You can, as you probably know, test with "-n", which only outputs, what rsync would do, and in case it's too much output, pipe that through less.

But, I have also synced kmail's config files:
rsync -avuh --delete $HOME/.trinity/share/config/{kmail,email}* user@otherhost:.trinity/share/config/

Regards,
Stefan
