Default Convert mbox to Maildir?


I'm using the mbox format for my mailboxes on my Debian Woody server, the mailboxes are located under /var/spool/mail.

Now I want to switch to the Maildir format, but I do not want to lose the mails that are in the mailboxes under /var/spool/mail. Is there a way to transfer the emails from mbox to Maildir?

I had the same problem a few weeks ago, but I came across this great perl script: mb2md.pl. You can find it here: http://batleth.sapienti-sat.org/projects/mb2md/

Worked great for me!

You can also search for mbox2maildir or something like that on Google. There are a few more solutions out there...
