(Imail) mailbox to (courier-imap/postfix) maildir


Hi all

I'm trying to find a tool which will convert mailboxes (originating from Imail ... 6 i think) to postfix / courier-imap maildirs. Now i've found http://www.qmail.org/top.html#maildir (from here, google and various other sites) and played with quite a few of these tools. I think i've even worked out how to make the suckers run ... BUT unfortunately when i use the programs (http://batleth.sapienti-sat.org/projects/mb2md/ in particular but also some of the others) they all want the mailboxes in a specific place (which isn't that much of a problem, i have to get them off the NT server to somewhere eitherway) BUT when they convert them i either get junk (ie blank emails) or (using the mb2md) a single BIG message.

Anyone have any experience with any of these tools (or another ... better tool)? Any ideas? is there something strange about imail's mailboxes?

Edit: Incidentally, it appears that the mail file from Imail is actually what is at fault ... If i look at the file using mail it reads it as a single email (consistent with the mb2md tool).

this is what mail reports :

chakkerz@laptix:~$ mail
