    I used falko's howto:

    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-users-domains-postfix-courier-mysql-squirrelmail-ubuntu8.10

    to install postfix and I think everything is working, but I have a few questions. I guess I'll break them into threads. The first question is how do I migrate my sendmail MBox formatted mail files to the Courier?/Postfix? formatted MailDir files?

    I tried a perl script called perfect_maildir.pl, and it seemed to do the job EXCEPT that it marked all my mail as read.

    The other problem I noticed was that in Apple Mail, when I marked a message as Junk, it wouldn't get moved to the Junk folder. It sat in the Inbox with as message 0. I don't know if this is related to using perfect_maildir.pl, but it seemed possible.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -Jon

    Have you used any of these successfully? The problem wasn't finding a tool, it was finding one that worked properly.

    Its been long since i used one i think it was Ivan Kohler's one, but that was a long time ago.

    My recent migrations have all been via imapsync
