I just saw today that KDE 2.1 is shipping with a utility to go from
to mbox.

        New version of KmailCvt: this tool converts Outlook Express 4/5
folders to mbox format (as used by KMail). It can also turn PAB
into Kab format (KDE1 and 2).

BTW, I use Kmail. I think I'd rather use Evolution, but it will have to

start working reliably first.
