Newbish Question


I am just about to make a complete move into linux and was wondering if there is a way to almost like import the outlook express dbx files from windows and import them into some email client in linux...


Any help out there?



Thanks in advance.

This looks promising... you can obviously skip the first part unless you're actually using Outlook and not Outlook Express...

Ok, I'm assuming you're not getting hung up on the export/import/runscript routine. If that's the case, then I'd guess LDAP is throwing you off. Here's a link to Red Hat's website that does a pretty good job describing what an LDAP server/client is, what they do for you, etc.

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...e/ch-ldap.html

I don't know that there's any email client per se on Linux that incorporates sending mail, composing it, contacts list, etc. into one bundle. The exception might be Ximian Evolution. As far as I know, it's striving to be as MS-Outlook-like as possible. I haven't looked at it closely or used it. It may even come with a tool to handle what you want... dunno.

In that case...

I found this: http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/cooker/...4mdk.i586.html

I don't know whwether Mandrake RPMs are usable by other distros though.

For KDE in general (display emails):
http://freshmeat.net/projects/k-dbx/?topic_id=28

Another thread with a similar problem:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/21126:

out2unix (you'll have to export from Express to Outlook for this):
http://cvs.berlios.de/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/out2unix/

Hope some of this helps...
