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?

I'd also like to learn more about this.

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 to change the format into a .vcf file. However, when I attempt to work from the console, I get thus error:

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

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