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.

For accounts with subfolders (Archives, Archives/2020 etc.) I used:

 MaildirStore me-local
 Path ~/Mail/me
 Inbox ~/Mail/me/INBOX
+SubFolders Verbatim
