Best solution for complex issue - migrating large mail archive to Ubuntu box
Here is the scenario:
I have a large email archive that I use every now and then for reference and search. Currently it's only available from one workstation and I'd like to have it accessible from any IMAP client on any machine. I already have all of the Postfix/Dovecot connection issues taken care of.
Where I need help is how to approach getting all of the mail which is currently in Thunderbird's mbox format on a single windows machine - onto my net-accessible Ubuntu box in Unix format. Somewhere out there has to be a better solution than trying to forward all of the emails to the new mail account on the server.
If there isn't a better solution - are there any concerns about trying to send many thousands of mails across the internal network? I'm just looking for the best, most logical way to approach the issue.
Thanks... Ubuntu 10.04 - Postfix/Dovecot - SSL/TLS IMAP connection.
