OK having asked my stupid question I'll try a more sensible one.
This migration involved not only a large contact list but also a very
large number of emails. From the mb2md man page usage section I learned
that I could convert an individual file from mbox to mdir with output to
mb2md -s /home/blah/.evolution/mail/local/inbox
on the old box which could be copied to
on the new box and that worked OK.
Then I tried to convert all my old mail directories of which there were
mb2md -s /home/blah/.evolution/mail/local -R
and that seemed to work too but on closer inspection I had replicated
the rich directory structure of the old system but most of those
directories were empty?
Again any help much appreciated.
