How do I convert NMH mail to mbox format?


Not recommended
This operation is not recommended, and we cannot guarantee the integrity of converted mailboxes. You are encouraged to use Pine if you still need to read legacy NMH or mbox e-mail.

The packf command will pack NMH mailboxes into mbox format.

$ packf +foldername -mbox -file export.mbox

You may omit +foldername to use the current (as indicated by the folder command) mailbox.
