Thanks very much for your response.
I probably did not explain my setup clearly.
I collect email on my desktop from 3 public mail servers (such as gmail).
I run dovecot on the desktop,
which allows me to read the email (with kmail) on my laptop.
So I suppose I am running a mail server in some sense on my desktop.
But I don't accept email on the desktop from outside my system,
which is what I would normally think of as characterising a mail server.
In that case you are running both mail server and client on the same system -
which isn't a problem.

I'm not sure how one tells if KAddressBook is "akonadi-controlled".
In any case, File=>New=>New Group in KAddressBook is greyed out.
(I don't see Add a Group as an option anywhere.)
I notice I don't have the KAddressBook handbook or manual on my system,
though I have yum-installed both kdepim and kdepim-devel .
(As I mentioned, my version of kdepim is 4.4.4-1 .)
OK - it sounds as though you may have somehow managed to by-pass the migration
- the first thing is to find out whether you have any records in
~/.local/share/contacts. If you have, your records have been migrated. If
not, I'll help you through getting your old records into a new akonadi-
controlled addressbook. Be aware that nepomuk must be running - you can
disable strigi if you find resource problems, though.
You'll find lots of issues documented on these UserBase pages, but check the
directory I mentioned first, and if you aren't sure which steps apply to you
we should be able to sort it out, with that answer.
