Note that while claws doesn't have an import from kmail function, it DOES
have a script available that will do it. That's how I handled things
here, altho I had to hack it a bit to get it to work, since the shebang
was calling for an ancient python. But I updated the shebang to the
version of python 2.x that I had on the system, and got it to work. See
my older posts on the subject for further details. (Of course, ensure
you have backups before running such a script, but it didn't screw things
up here. I wouldn't expect a python3 to work, tho, but it might.)
I'm apparently more selective with mail than you; I use gmane's list2news
and pan for mailing lists, don't do /so/ much by mail, and generally
delete spam, so I had less mail size-wise to convert, a bit under a gig.
But I had mail going back before the turn of the century, to early 2002
from kmail, then before that, imported into kmail in 2002, from MSOE,
back to 1997 or so.
I really should probably spend a couple days going thru the oldest stuff
and deleting much of it, and I've done a bit of that, but I could
certainly do more. I could probably get it down to ~300 MB or so if I
did. But there's always more important, or at least more interesting,
stuff to do.
