    Default Linux Alternative for Mail Store

    Hi,
    I was wondering if Linux has a similar program like Windows Mailstore.
    Mailstore can backup, archive AND be searched.
    I definitely want to search my old email when moving to a new provider
    I searched AlternativeTo but there are only backups and archive alternatives
    Does anybody have a hint to a program or alternative?

    I use Kmail, and simply copied the entire content of two provider accounts to Lokale Mappen/Archief/email_adres, then removed the two accounts. As searchable as they were before. And all 40,000 messages preserved.

    As simple as that!
    That's a better solution then I hoped.
    No extra program
    Thank you very much Knurpht
