Hi All,

To make a long story short, somebody messed up a snow leopard server completely.
We ended up installing Lion Server together with Kerio Connect.

I've managed to reserve the old mailstore which are in a directory called ../data/mail/3D975BB9-BE76-4973-986B-908997CD3D77 (example)

In this mailstore there are a lot of directories which are hidden like .INBOX.Info etc. AND directories like cur , new , tmp.

Is it possible to extract the emails from those folders and put them in a readable format? Or export them to a mbox file?

I really need to figure this out or else all email will be lost.

Hi Robert,

Did you already tried to 'mount' this mailstore in another Dovecot-setup? I think the fastest way of doing this is to hook up a Dovecot-installation that you can connect to using IMAP and migrate the old messages with either Kerio IMAP migration tool or imapsync to the new boxes.
