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