NAME

mbx2mbox - Converts Outlook .mbx and .dbx files into standard RFC822 mail files.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  mbx2mbox [-dc] <files ending in .mbx or .dbx>



DESCRIPTION

mbx2mbox attempts to convert Microsoft’s proprietary .mbx and .dbx formats to the standard RFC822 mail format used by programs like Pine, Eudora, and Netscape. The .mbx and .dbx files provided as arguments to mbx2mbox are processed and output to files having the same name, except without the .mbx extension.

Mailboxes from newer versions of Outlook and Outlook express may not be supported. Be sure to compress your mailbox using Outlook, which should help remove some of the binary data from the file. Also be aware that this script has not been tested for Outlook versions since circa 1997, and may not work.

For a survey of alternative methods of converting Outlook mailboxes, visit the mbx2mbox homepage at http://mbx2mbox.sourceforge.net/.

OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS

<B>-cB> Causes mbx2mbox to more agressively remove binary-like characters. (This will remove characters that are part of the foreign language character set.)
<B>-dB> Debug mode.

EXAMPLES

Process saved.mbx and sent.dbx, creating the standard mail files saved and sent.



  mbx2mbox saved.mbx sent.dbx
