Importing Evolution files to thunderbird


I have what I believe to be an Evolution mail archive which I now find the need to access. For each mailbox, I see these files

bash-3.1$ ls Inbox*
Inbox Inbox.cmeta Inbox.ev-summary Inbox.ibex.index Inbox.ibex.index.data

On the original cdr backup, there is also Inbox.sbd/ which appears to be an empty directory. I can read this stuff with mutt -f Inbox, but mutt has it's limitations. I would like to be able to get them into thunderbird, or even gmail.

What's the trick? When I boot thunderbird, it doesn't really want to know.

Thanks @repo

I would never have thought of going to an ubuntu website. Looks the business. I have two of them (mbox import extensions)
