- mb2md -
convert mbox folders to maildir. I used this for my own personal
LARGE collection of folders.
- perfectmaildir -
also for converting mbox to maildir
- in python

Archiving/removing old mail messages
- dovecot - I've switched to this;
it does pretty well with my huge
collection of folders. It's designed to be secure, and can handle
both mbox and Maildir.
- wu imapd - I used to use this, but it was terribly slow on my
large collection of folders.
- courier - uses a fullblown database, which may actually end up
being a disadvantage as filesystems gain more database-like
functionality. Not Zed, notzed at ximian.com, indicates that
courier has a lot of bugs (Tue, 08 Jun 2004 09:23:21 +0800).
Go here for the dreaded Microsoft
- archivemail -
can both archive and delete (optionally skipping unread messages)
old mail messages. Supports mbox, MH, Maildir and IMAP.
