|Summary: Converting Mbox mailboxes to Maildir format.|
mb2md.pl is a Perl script that takes one or more Mbox format mailbox files in a directory and convert them to Maildir format mailboxes. With the Mbox format all mail of a specific folder is stored as one large text file. The Maildir format stores each mail as a seperate file. It is a faster and more efficient way to store mail. It works particularly well over NFS, which has a long history of locking-related woes. The Mbox format is used by most of the POP3/IMAP servers, most mail servers (MTAs) and mail readers (MUAs). The Maildir format is used by Qmail, Courier-MTA and can be also used as a alternative mail storage format by Postfix and Exim. A good POP3/IMAP server for Maildirs is Courier IMAP. Mb2md.pl does not only convert mailbox files into a Maildir but also the /var/spool/mail/$USER mailspool file. It is smart enough to not transfer a dummy message such as the UW IMAPD puts at the start of Mbox mailboxes - and you could add your own search terms into the script to make it ignore other forms of dummy first message.
