Reading/Forwarding mail archives into another email account
I've set up an archiving system using qmail-scanner. I would like to be able to download these into an email client, but the emails aren't archived into a mailbox, just a folder.
Is there a way of copying these files so they are recognised by maildir format?
An alternative (if anything preferable) would be to just go through the folder, send each file to an external email account as if it was BCCed to that email.... I'm betting mail could be used in some smart way?
