- Eudora to mbox converter
Conversion utility to convert Eudora mailboxes (already mostly mbox format) to real mbox formatted mailboxes, gone is all the html/x-flowed and other garbage.
Reads the TOC file and properly inserts both Status: and X-Status: headers so that mailers like mutt/pine/elm can properly tell what messages are read, new, replied, etc.
Usage: <mailbox_name>
convert mailbox_name.mbx and mailbox_name.toc to out/mailbox_name (a directory ./out must exist)
Christian Ruetgers suggests this script for simplifying mass conversions:
#! /bin/bash
# put your eudora mailboxes into dir ./in
# script will convert all mailboxes to mbox
# in ./out
# directorys ./in and ./out has to be exist

for i in in/*.toc; do
    ./ in/${base2} -o ./out/${base2}
    echo \'${base2}\'

OK, it's painfully obvious that I don't have time to maintain this anymore. If someone else wants to take it over, please let me know.

Sorry, I've been terribly lax with things here lately. I'll get some new stuff out, soon. Until then, I recommend using the latest development version, I haven't heard about any problems with it, and it has many more features than the original.

Developer release 1.1b (build 1.27). Corrected a problem with the prefix code so that the prefix will be added even if there is not a specific output name specified. Fixed the code so that files with DOS line-endings are recognized and dealth with correctly.

Developer Release 1.1a (build 1.23). Added --toc option to force toc file usage or not. Defaults to on, but can be turned off with --notoc. Reworking some internal data gathering and debug output, hopefully making things a bit faster.
NOTE: --notoc is for corrupted toc files. Macintosh users should use "Use old-style ".toc" files" in Misc. Settings.

Release 1.1. Added GNU AutoConf Script. Refined Options. Added support for Macintosh Eudora users (although there are some oddities with endian-ness in the TOC file). Refined Argument Handling, and implemented GetOpt::Long. Added support for output file names and locations, as well as prefix. Tweaked verbosity so that there are levels 1-4. See the ChangeLog for more details.

Release 1.0. Pretty rough as-of-yet. Does not check for existance of directory ./out, does not allow for bulk-coversions
