What is the best way to migrate user mail box files from SIMS to Postfix/Cyrus?

Copy them to the unix system you will be migrating to and then change the line endings.

Aslo, if you are using Cyrus to handle the mail, I think Cyrus uses it's own mbox format (or does it use MH?) so you will have to find out how to convert the mbox file to Cyrus friendly format.

Once you've changed the line endings (a simple one line shell command using tr is probably easiest) the SIMS mbox is a standard mbox (pine and elm and mutt will read it just fine), so you should be able to go from there.

The relevant 'tr' command:

tr "\r" "\n" <simsmailbox >convertedmailbox
