No, KDE 4.2 is using ~/.kde4

Start with a clean ~/.kde4 and copy config files which you need from the old

If you start with a clean ~/.kde4, you should be able to reconfigure kmail 
redoing your settings. Importing mails might more demanding and complicated 
task (check ~/Mail or ~/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/).

Again, something is badly screwed in your config. The easiest way is to start 
fresh. However, if you still face similar problems with fresh ~/.kde4, check 
your installation.
