YAM - Yet Another Mailer (#2) - pine mbox importing (#17) - Message List

pine mbox importing
 unsolved

I have a UNIX account and use "pine" and was trying to import a 160MB "mbox" file. YAM 2.5 said it could not recognize but SimpleMail was fine....it took a long time to parse in SimpleMail but it worked.

Also, is there a way to "import" SimpleMail email into YAM.

    I have a UNIX account and use "pine" and was trying to import a 160MB "mbox" file. YAM 2.5 said it could not recognize but SimpleMail was fine....it took a long time to parse in SimpleMail but it worked.

    Was that 160MB in one single mail? Or lots of mails summing up to 160MB?

    Also, is there a way to "import" SimpleMail email into YAM.

    Export the mails with SimpleMail and import them again with YAM. Nothing simpler than that. There is no more "direct" import method.

    This was 1 single file that had 1000+ emails within it... Is there any option I need to use in Simplemail to export...

    Hm, I did this several times already and never ran into any problem. But then my .mbox files didn't stem from pine but either YAM itself or SimpleMail.

    Is there any option I need to use in Simplemail to export...

    What kind of option are you talking about?
