Importing IE e-mails

Running Suse7 is great fun and I'm enjoying experimenting with the software provided.

For the web I am a bit bored of Netscape so I use Opera which I have used for a long time on Windows and I think it's great, but can you import e-mails from Windows IE and Opera's e-mail software to Linux Opera or even Netscape or will they just have to stay on the Windows Drive.

If you can - how?

Dunno about opera but I was able to do it with Kmail, i just opened up Kmail & went to file --> import & found the outlook e-mail folder in windows & it imported all my mail to Kmail.
If you need more info let me know.

Wow, this was/is an amazingly old message If you can import the messages into a program called eudora from then you can simply drag the mailbox over into your user's home directory. The same goes for Outlook Express.

Hi guys, reading Kmail is smart enough to find the outlook emails reassures me but since I'm gonna explode windows to bits, I'll backup manually my emails (150mb o_O)

Oh, while I'm here, I'll give out the exact location of OE mails, since few know where to get them for backup in NT based systems I think ^^
C:\Documents and Settings\$USER \Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\$BIGCHUNKOLETTERS\Microsoft\Outlook Express

$USER == the windows user you're running in
$BIGCHUNKOLETTERS == the identity no.

All of outlook's filles are .dbx
I'd like to know if kmail can get simple dbx files (and if I can browse them manually), before I switch

sorry for digging a VERY old post.
