Nope.  It would have been ~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc.  I do contract work
for the Canadian government, and I have a lot of addresses in there
with "".  Since they're migrating them to
just "@dfo-mpo...", and since my wife's name begins "mar", I thought I'd
change them all to the new form, and then not have to scroll through the
whole list to get to my wife.  It never worked.  The @#$%^&* list still has
all the "mar."s in it.
