    has anyone got a few hints for me on how I can convert old exim mails (created on a cpanel powered server) to the qmail format?

    horde has an option to upload the file and it would convert it. it worked fine for small files ( < 8 mb) but mine are all around 100 mb and uploading those via the browser is ... well impossible.

    a shell script would be awesome or anything that works painlessly for 20 big files.

    thanks for your help. I had a go at the script and it semi-worked:

    perl mb2md.pl -s /root/test/inbox -d /var/qmail/mailnames/domain.com/liquidblaze

    Converting /root/test/inbox to maildir: /var/qmail/mailnames/domain.com/liquidblaze
    Source Mbox is /root/test/inbox
    Target Maildir is /var/qmail/mailnames/domain.com/liquidblaze 
    Dummy mail system first message detected and not saved.
    3 messages.
    however, the messages dont show up in my inbox nor anywhere else..


    woohoo. found it.

    the target mail dir should be:


    somehow ... obvious :rolleyes:
