Migrate an mail Client


how many of you never have been asked for changing an email client whitout losing all the setting (and obviously the emails!)?

This mini tips suggest you how to recreate the folders migrating from Evolution to Thunderbirds (but it’s the same from Thunderbirds to Evolution)

The code in general is:

cp .program from/link to folder .program to/link to folder

All need to be typed in one line

This is an example of how to copy the Inbox folder:

cp .evolution/mail/local/Inbox
.mozilla-thunderbird/hym4ru4b.default/Mail/Local\ Folders/Inbox

If you have another folder (eg: Ebay):

cp .evolution/mail/local/Ebay
.mozilla-thunderbird/hym4ru4b.default/Mail/Local\ Folders/Ebay

If you invert source with destination you can migrate from thunderbird to evolution
