I can't find much documentation on the convert_mail plugin. For
example, on the wiki plugins page, clicking on convert goes to
<http://wiki.dovecot.org/InterWiki> which is not relevant.
Can I use convert_mail to migrate from UW IMAP 2002 mbox format where
some mail is in ~/ and the inboxes are in /var/spool/mail? Will it know
which files are mbox folders, so it doesn't try to convert other files
in the home directories? When are the e-mails converted? Are the old
files deleted? Is this configuration snippet valid?
default_mail_env = maildir:~/Maildir
convert_mail = mbox:~/:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
If I can do that, it seems like an easy change.
