Recent procmails support Maildir out of the box. Here's the
relevant bits from my /etc/procmailrc:
Putting a trailing / on the mailbox name tells procmail to
use Maildir format.
And to convert all your existing mbox mailboxes:
convert-user goes through /home/<user>/Mail and converts all the
mailboxes found to Maildirs using mbox2maildir.
The only thing that's left is to fix the dates on the messages.
If you just run convert-user.sh, Outlook will show all messages
as having a received date of the time you did the conversion.
I had another script to pull out the From_ line, parse the date
from this line and use touch to set the correct date on the file.
Can't find it here at work, though. I'm pretty sure I have it
at home. I'll dig it up this evening...
Needless to say, be vewy vewy carefull when doing this. Don't
hold me responsible if you hose your users' mail.
