Import mailboxes from Thunderbird into Mail.app
Authored by: MonkeyMini on Apr 06, '05 02:52:31PM

Could anyone point me in the right direction on how to run a python script?
I've just bought into the whole Mac thing, and I really want to convert my Thunderbird mail to Mail.app but I've no idea where to start with the python script.

I downloaded Platypus in the hope I could make an application for it but I've not got anywhere? How do I pass the .mbox to the script?

Thank you :)

To use a Python script, open a terminal window, and type:

python somescript.py optional_parameters.

This is the same way you would run a python script from Windows using a console (DOS) window.

I used the cleanmbox.py script and it worked fine.
