Question Import OE6 mail into Evolution


Hi all,

Is it possible to export my Outlook Express 6 messages then import them into Evolution? I have the .dbx files from OE6, just no way of importing them into Evolution. Any ideas? Also, is it possible to create mail filters so that if the recipient is a certain address, the mail is not downloaded from the server?

Cheers,
Graeme

I'd also like to learn more about this.

http://www.ximian.com/products/evolu...es.html#compat

states (third note) that "Outlook Express". I'd assume v6 and former versions are the same as far as how they store the address/contact info.

just don't have a box with OE to test this out and play with it... *shrug*

I'd like to resurrect this topic, since I'm trying to transfer an OE address book to Ximian 1.4. As instructed, I've made it into a .csv file. Now, I'm trying to force Ximian's Perl script csv2vcard.pl to change the format into a .vcf file. However, when I attempt to work from the console, I get thus error:

# csv2vcard.pl contacts.csv contacts.vcf
-bash: csv2vcard.pl: command not found


I know I'm working from the directory in which csv2vcard.pl resides. contacts.csv is in there too.
