This script converts the Evolution IMAP cache into an MBOX folder. It can be
useful if you remove an IMAP folder by accident. The status (read, unread,
important, deleted,...) stored in the .ev-summary file will be lost.

NOTE: Evolution stores its IMAP cache here:

This script is not finished, so it can't convert all messages. In my case,
it converted successfully 98.09% of the mails.

If you have any question, you can contact me here:

PS: Yes I know that the code is ugly...


    Change the path of the input folder (the evolution cache) and the path
    of the output file (the MBOX Folder) in the script file (variables
    INPUT (line 32) and OUTPUT (line 33)). Then, run the script.
