Best way to import a PST file into Evolution?
I recently made the permanent move over to Linux on my home machine. I need to import all my old mail which is in the form of a pst file.
I have tried
Importing mail from Outlook into thunderbird on my Windows laptop. It doesnt even know Outlook is installed!
I have tried the pst import plug in for Thunderbird on Linux and windows and it doesnt work.
I tried readpst on linux. Didnt work
I tried outport on windows which exported all the email to folders and files, but Evolution didn't want to know.
In the end I noticed by mistake that Thunderbird could see Outlook Express, so I imported the emails to express and then to Thunderbird!
I then copied the mail folder over and did single file import on the filenames like Inbox without the extension!
So I got it done in the end but what would have been an easier way?

For the most compatibility with tools you want:
pst less than 2GB
2000 format pst
You can easily convert by attaching both in outlook and copying/exporting from the new format to the old 2000 one.

It becomes helpful for the user to merge different .pst files. User are always in search of the software that can satisfy this merging different PST files in one file. So the wait is over now user can use Merge PST file software to merge different files in one file.
