Thanks! I just tried it out quickly as it's already late. I could import
my old messages. Hooray!
Now there's a new problem: many people I know seem to use bad mailers
and don't have any charset specified. Somehow the setting for such mails
in balsa (Western European (Euro)) applies only to the title of the
mail, but not to the body. All //etc. are shown as ?.

I'll take a look at this tomorrow.
