Any way to import my emails from outlook express to sylpheed?

Hello again slackers!

First off I want to thank everyone here at LQ for being so helpfull. I am so close to becoming Windows free, the main reason that I have not gone completely Linux is gaming but that is another issue.

Now to my issue.

I want to know if anyone would be able to give me some insight as to how to get all of my emails in windows so that I can view them in sylpheed?

Any ideas?

I don't know the *best* way, but here is an example of one way you could do something to export them.

From your OE inbox --> edit menu -- select all

And that should highlight all your emails in your inbox.

Message menu --> click on forward

After some processing (depending on how many emails, size, speed of your computer), you should see a message come up with an attachments field (all your emails should be in there). You don't need to send this message.

File --> save attachments.

This will save them with an .eml extension, but each one will be plain text format.

Hope that helps somewhat.

I'd bet this has been answered on the Sylpheed maillist which you can find at Sylpheed . One way to do it might be to import it first into Mozilla-Mail (or, perhaps, Eudora) then export in a format that Sylpheed can understand.
