[Evolution] Re: Converting from MH to Evolution

Having used MH before, and converted before, here's my recommendation:

For each message in each folder, pipe it through 'formail' (to insure
that the headers are sane) and pipe that through a procmail filter that
just looks like this:

    :0 w

procmail groks Maildirs, so this will fill your IMAP inbox with every
last bit of mail you have in MH.  Evo can then filter it into the
appropriate places.

That's a rather large hammer, don't you think?  I'm talking about
300Meg of email in my folders right now and hundreds of messages per
day incoming.  I was hoping to maintain procmail as delivery agent and
use Evo to access it.
