    I used falko's howto:

    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, 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, but it seemed possible.

    Your help is appreciated.

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