This is the last time that a new version of Koma-Mail will not be compatible to older versions. You cannot convert your folders and your mail-accounts.
To upgrade please make a backup first! Now create a second KM directory and create all folders you have in your old version.
After this you can copy the mailhead.dat, mail.dat, contacts.dat, Actions.dat, trustedaddresses.dat, Spamlist.dat and Spamwords.dat in the new user directory. You should now be able to read your old emails again.
