Unhappy need to make Postfix read qmail files


I'm in the middle of a server upgrade, and would like to change my MTA from qmail to Postfix, I have several e-mail files in the dot-qmail format that I need to have available to me once I make the switch. I would greatly appreciate anyone who could point me in the right direction.

If your wondering - i don't have anything against qmail, it's just that I have 2 other boxes running postfix -because that's what was installed as part of the Distro. So for my own sanity, and ease of management, I want to go all postfix.

QMail works with maildir as I know, postfix can work pretty well with maildirs too, so I believe that you will have no problems.

Try using maildrop to deliver messages to the mailbox, courier-imap and courier-pop to imap and pop respectively.

I just looked up dot-qmail files, and saw them to be the qmail-equivalent of .forward files, the syntax of which is to be found here. Note that an address line in a .forward file does not begin with an ampersand.
