in which format are mailboxes?

Post by labsy » Wed Dec 24, 2003 1:56 pm

Which format does mailEnable use to store mails in mailboxes? I see thare is a separate file with name by ID for each mail in user's mailbox.

I want to migrate my user's mailboxes from Linux MBOX format to myilEnable, so I needto know which format to convert to. Might it be DBMAIL format?

...and one more thing:
that filenames in "Inbox" folder, for example:

3648652CA93B4390BACF2D99B22C3D.MAI

Are these names RANDOMLY generated, or is this some kind of checksum?

If this is RANDOM, I could then simply migrate mailboxes from other known formats. :)

Well, I believe the filename is generated using a GUID and removing the dash.
