OT: Linux Mail Server

Hi, i have found tools, for win32 that will convert all the popular format
to another - eg Notes > IMAP4 (live to your mail server) its
www.transend.com and for a single user license is like $20US - whihc is all
you will need, which will keep your mail in a preserved state, no forwarding
messing up your headers etc - you could create a script to automate this in
win32 with autoit i think.

Only other way would be to write some imap script, or use an imap client on
your gateway that has a local maildir, get it to daily grab the mail from
your notes server, get Julian's sa-learn bash script to run on the maildir
of the imap client ? I am sure there are various ways to do this, and some
maybe be more simple.

I ahve to solve the above Notes and sa-learn issue, and convert 300+ Notes
users to maildir format on linux - so will post a howto once i am done if
you like?

As would I. I'm stuck with mail archived to Notes .nsf files, and
would absolutely *love* a way to convert them into headers-and-body
in just about any recognized mail format.
