Linux migration. Part IV. Moving Emails

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

You have created a Dual-Boot System on your PC and looked at what we get ‘from Box’ with Ubuntu Linux. Now we need to move our emails from Outlook™ or Outlook Express into KMail email Linux-application.

I had been struggling with readPST utility. I was hope for smooth converting my 3Gb Outlook PST file into KMail-compatible mbox structure. But it failed…
 The latest version of readPST/libPST utility can convert PST files of Outlook 97-2002, but it can’t work with Outlook 2003 PST.
 After I saved emails in an old (2002) version PST and converted the file, the KMail didn’t can import them correct. All messages in every folder were agglutinate in a long single message.
 So, don’t waste time with readPST.

Kubuntu desktop looks similar to Windows™. You’ll find the Start button in the form of “K” and the System menu with installed applications.
