  • Are you sure that this person is throwing a mail folder/file at your module, and not a lovely piece of microsoft proprietary nonsense (read "a single, very ugly, database")? I'm pretty sure that Outlook Express could not export as an mbox, so there'd have to be some funky applescript or the like being invoked if your correspondent has produced a sensible format.

    (For what it's worth: "Entourage", the successor of OE, at least implemented a "drag and drop to mbox" feature.)

      Well, M::T::Dbx is supposed to work with these proprietary files. It expects to see files with the .mbx extension as produced by OutlookX.

      But your point isn't totally invalid. Whenever I receive mails like that, I never exclude that the user made something wrong. It's usually the first thing I try to rule out in the following mail correspondance. People only seldom give a complete report with all information necessary. :-(
