Thread: Kmail Help

  1. #1

    Default Kmail Help

    I installed openSUSE on one of the spare computers in work to test it out before I install it on my own laptop. I tried connecting Kmail to MS exchange and did so successfully using POP 3 but never checked the box saying leave messages on the server and it removed the emails from the server. Now I have nothing in my Outlook Inbox on my XP machine.

    Any suggestion as to how I can restore the emails from Kmail to the server.

    Thanks

    Before somebody suggests contacting the IT department. I am the IT department.

    Thanks

    Install Thunderbird and connect it to the Exchange server then drag-n-drop the emails from Kmail to Thunderbird (thus back onto the Exchange server)?

    Can't find an export option to export an entire mail folder. I've 345 in total so I don't want to have to save each individual email and import.

    Install Thunderbird and connect it to the Exchange server then drag-n-drop the emails from Kmail to Thunderbird (thus back onto the Exchange server)?
    I will try this tomorrow.

    I aso found this solution which i will give a go. Export from kmail... [solved] - MandrivaUsers.org

    Cheers.

    Thumbs up Re: Kmail Help

    This worked KMail Export. With a little alteration. Thanks

    I copied my inbox folder from .kde/share/apps/kmail/mail/inbox/cur to a memory stick and copied it to my XP PC with outlook.

    I then renamed all the files from my Kmail inbox to .eml files. They were in the form of 1269873234.4866.14R2s. I used command prompt for this. I navigated to the directory on the local PC where i stored the Kmail inbox and used the command rename *.* to *.eml which changed the above file and all files to 1269873363.4866 (1).eml.

    I wasn't able to import these into Outlook 2003 because they kept opening Outlook express when i tried to. So i imported all files into Outlook Express successfully and imported into Outlook 2003 from there.

    Problem sorted

    Thanks for the help
