hi, this is robinson, i was using linux ans all my mails r in .evolution folder now i m having a windows operating system and i need my linux mails into windows, so i need help how to convert my .evolution mails into outlook, is there any particular software to convert mails, i av heard abt Uniaccess but it makes too many folders i m bored getting it in one folder, plz do me a favour suggest me the gud and fast way to convert it.
Evolution usually stores emails in the standard mbox format. I don't use Outlook, but virtually all email programs can import mbox files.
The big disadvantage of Outlook is that it uses a proprietary, binary .pst format for storing email, so it is difficult to switch away and makes you dependent on MS software. Do you really need Outlook? If not, try Thunderbird - it is available for both Windows and Linux, and uses the same mbox format as Evolution.
