I know this is strictly off-topic for this newsgroup, but given that so
many linux users are ex-Windows users, and given the ubiquity of Pegasus
mail on that platform, I thought someone here might be able to help.
Like many others, I suspect, I ended up being a Pegasus mail user on
Windows less out of choice and more out of the fact that it was simply
the default mail application on most of the machines I've ever had to
use at work. As a result I have a huge amount of mail, in a fairly
complex hierarchy of trays and folders, in Pegasus' proprietary format,
plus address books, distribution lists etc. What's worse, many of these
folders have as their real (i.e.file) name things like fold0071.pmm.
Does anyone know of a utility that will convert *all*, or failing that,
*virtually all* of this into something linux-friendly? I've found
several utilities, including a nifty perl script by E. Heyns which
convert pegasus folders into mbox format, but generally the tray/folder
hierarchy is lost and the mboxes end up called things like fold0071.mbox
instead of what they are known to Pegasus as. I have found nothing which
succesfully converted any of my address books. Given the large number
of folders and trays that I have, recreating the hierarchy and renaming
all the folders is a less than attractive option.
I am hoping to eventually use Evolution as my mailer, and am for the
meantime using kmail, if that is of any use.
Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions,
