    Install the Thunderbird email client into windows xp then you can use the import feature in Thunderbird to bring them into folders in Thunderbird in windows. Then you can copy those folders directly into the Thunderbird file structure in Linux. Then when you open Thunderbird in Linux you'll see them all.

    is make possible export your mail in one of many different formats, they
    are may be imported to any e-mail client on openSUSE KMail, Thunderbird

    Another method of mail migration is to upload all mail to an IMAP mail
    server, and then download them again in the target client. This should work
    with any pair of clients.

    Of course, it is faster if the imap server is local.
