IIf there is a mandriva package with the name mb2md, install that, if not, have a look here:

Just download the mb2md script (the lonk is at the end of the page), unpack the tar.gz file and copy the mb2md file to your /usr/bin directory.

Would it be the files located in var/mail/ or the files located at /var/spoo/mail/?
The directories are symlinked, so you can use one of the, e.g. /var/mail/ because its shorter

There is a Maildir in /var/www/web9/ and also one in /var/www/web9/user/john/.
Will my destination be /var/www/web9/Maildir/ or /var/www/web9/user/john/Maildir?
Use always the directory inside the "user" directory, in this case:


Assuming that the mbox file is under /var/mail/ and the destination is under /var/www/web9/Maildir/, does this syntax look correct?
mb2md -c -s /var/mail/john -d /var/www/web9/Maildir/john
Try first without the -c option, if this wont work you can try with -c.
