🔗Migrate Email with mbsync

Just wanted to boost this blog post as it greatly helped me migrate emails from Luke Smith’s emailwiz script to Modoboa (more on that in a future post).
In package managers, mbsync is often installed through isync.
Here are some things mbsync complained about:
UseIMAPS is deprecated, I simply left it out and it worked ok.
For accounts with subfolders (Archives, Archives/2020 etc.) I used:
MaildirStore me-local Path ~/Mail/me Inbox ~/Mail/me/INBOX +SubFolders Verbatim
SubscribeEmails are sent about once a month instead of per post. Of course, I won't send you spam, and you can unsubscribe at any time. Otherwise, you can also subscribe via Atom or RSS, Telegram, or Mastodon.
