Great to hear that you too are using Mail::IMAPClient. Just a question
When I used the migrate function to migrate the folders ( from a WU-imap
server to a cyrus server ) I found that My script would sometimes just
hang. This would happen whenever the mails included some spechial
charachters and '\0' chars
So I did the laborius way of getting the mail list and copying all mails
one by one and timing out if a mail took too long. This way I also got
rid of the bug that would set an incorrect date on the destination
server. The date problem occurred only for Outlook Express clients.
BTW I am using Mail::IMAPClient ver 2.2.7

Now When I am trying to migrate from a lotus server I am having more
problems of mails timing out
Besides there is an excellent pascal script for IMAP copy at
But that too does not copy all mails

I was looking if there was a utlility that could directly read the
".nsf" files from a lotus server and convert to mails in cyrus

Did you not face these problems at all, Can you just me mail me your
script If you dont mind.
