a (minor) problem with the above, I just realised,
is the ‘$i’ (at least) in the bash -c '...$i...'
won't be properly expanded. easily fixed, for
instance (still NOT fully tested!):
for i in ...; do
find "$FOLDERS$i/mail/" -type f -print0 | \
xargs -0 -l1 bash -c 'mb2md -s "$2" -d "$1/.$(basename "$2")"' -- "$MAILDIR$i"
as typical, there are multiple possible fixes.
(has this subject been beaten into the ground yet?)
