Migrate emails from POP3 server to Courier


Hey,

I got my mail server setup today and it has POP3 and IMAP. I am trying to find the fastest way to migrate my emails from a pop3 account on another server.

Is there a program that will fetch mail from the pop3 server and dump it into imap without trying to send the email via smtp?

There is about 2 gigs of emails and I don't want to put postfix through that right now.

You could do it with just an email client.

Copy mail from the pop folder to the imap folder.

The prob with imap is that it keeps cache files and status files, so it really likes each email being added individually.

That is what I thought of doing, but I was really hoping there was something more automated...

oh well.
