KmailtoMbox V1.0 Arexx Script

If your like me, you've been using Kmail on Linux on your AmigaOne.  That was
mostly true in my case since my A4000 had become unreliable, so I could no
longer use it for email.  So all my email for the last year is in Kmail under
linux, but I want an Amiga only system, but still want to reference my old
mail.
 Enter this script.  :)  It will compile all the individual email message files
in a directory into the MBOX format that YAM wants to be able to import.  I
suspect this will work with other email programs too, but it hasn't been tested
on any other combination.

This script is "AS-IS", but feel free to modify it as to suit your specific
needs.  It worked for me (I've imported thousands of messages without an
issue).

Example Procedure:
1. Download script and put it into your rexx: directory.
2. Using samba from the PC side, move the entire Mail directory from your home
directory on you Linux install on the A1.  (I had problems the other way, and
besides, this forces samba to rename the files if they aren't compatible to the
filing system your using)
3. I zipped up the directory (and it's sub-directories with all the mail), and
FTPed it to my A1 (Or use whatever method you like to get it to the OS4 side of
your A1)
4. Once there, unzip the archive.
5. In a shell, go to the mail directory you just unarchived.  Such as
sent-mail.
6. type "rx KmailtoMbox cur'  This will start the process and when it's done,
you'll have a file called MBOX suitable for importing into YAM in your current
directory.  (Cur is the name Kmail uses for "current" mail.  Generally, new and
tmp are empty)
7. Rinse and repeat for the other folders you might like to import (like your
inbox).  :)
