    Hello,

    A customer of mine deleted all the messages in his mail account. Now, we wants me to restore a backup, wich is ok. The only problem is that the backup is still in the old format - mbox with the single "inbox" file.

    How can i restore the backup to maildir format, and then put it in the account?

    Please advice.

    thanks in advance!

    Move the mail back into the user's mail folder as you would normally do on an mbox system, then run:

    /scripts/convert2maildir

    You would want to run the partial conversion in this case.
