Re: [Evolution] Converter for *.pst files

there is a way out though not a standerd one but is perfect!!

Right he is. ;)

This has been mentioned previously, so you might be able to find
discussions about it in the archives. Just a few short comments.

1)Install mozilla on the system from where you want to import your
mails(from pst format)

This must be the Windows version. The issue is, Mozilla does not know
the pst format natively, but it does use the Windows libraries for

2)Start mozilla mail, just configure it for any dummy account

3)now go to Tools-->Import-->mails--><select as per your need>

4)this will import all the mails of Inbox,Draft,Sent while if you need
Deleted contents then in your outlook make a new folder and move all the
Deletd content then import the mail through mozilla.

5)See the location of *.slt file, it is at
Edit-->mail & newsgroup accounts...-->server settings-->local directory

6)copy this *.slt folder to your evolution system, write down the path
where you are keeping this.

7)run evolution and do file-->import-->import single file and go to
<path from step 6>*.slt-->mail-->local folders

You even can import mbox files by simply drag-n-drop them into any given
mail folder.

If you are going to import a lot of mbox files, it is possible to create
the Evolution internal directory structure by script and copying the
mbox files. Have a close look at your local mail folders and make sure
Evolution is closed by 'evolution --force-shutdown' before. And be
patient on the next Evolution start, as it will index the new folders.

FYI: This will be way more easy with Evolution 2.0, as the directory
structure is the same as the one Mozilla uses.


char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";

(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
