[Dovecot] Convert mbox to maildir

Thanks so much, it worked like a charm, did a few scripts to convert all the
mailboxes since I have already 200+ using procmail, and had to change also
the .procmailrc for each user to accommodate Maildir has default incoming

Only one comment, on the page "Converting from mbox to Maildir" you specify
on the second mb2md line "mb2md-3.20.pl -m -d /var/mail/incoming/someuser"
and it should be "mb2md-3.20.pl -m -s /var/mail/incoming/someuser"

Thanks again for the help and great work with dovecot!

Don't bother trying to run convert plugin with this old version. It's
since had a lot of bugfixes.

If you've only a few accounts, you could do the conversion with for
example mb2md.pl. See http://wiki.dovecot.org/Migration/MailFormat
