Hi Eric,

For starters if you have thousands of emails you probably do not want to use
mbox. mbox stores all emails in one file so storing them in a maildir format
is better.

What I normally do to convert emails from MS Windows is to create a new
account on my IMAP server and simply drag & drop them in the email client
program normaly Outlook Express or Outlook 2000

Fedora comes with dovecot which I have not used and FC2 also has Cyrus
(Which I use on RH9) but it should make the conversion pretty simple.

Regards John
