How to Forwarding all old emails to a new email address


I want to forward all my old mails to a new email address one by one instead of a big archieve. Of course I can manually forward one by one but I like to have this automated. Is there any (mail) application that allows me to do filters to do what I want ?

My inbox has about thousands of msg's in mailbox format, current I use mutt to view them (I can also view them using Thunderbird).


TIA

.forward

To have all emails from john@email.com to jim@email.com, ssh into john's email directory and:

# echo "jim@email.com" > .forward
