AFAIK, the file format for the Win32 and *nix versions of Netscape
are compatible. So you should be able to move the file over to the
woody box(many options to choose from here) and use either Netscape
4.x or Mozilla to read them.
Care to elaborate?
Well, it really depends on what configuration you have there. You could
network the two machines and then FTP the files across, use SAMBA to move
them, etc. Or, you could pull the drive from the NT machine and
temporarily put it in the Debian system and move the files. There are
many, many, many ways to skin this cat.

I can copy/move these Email files quite readily; but, how to read them
Of course, even if it is that simple, I am still left with the decision
regarding what program[s] is/are the best long term solution for
managing a large mass of Emails.
This is an age old question in the Linux world from what I've found. A
mail client tends to be a very personal thing. Ask 50 Linux users which
mail client they like and why and you'll probably get about 20+ different
answers. Perhaps if you can elaborate on what your mail client
requirements are, maybe some suggestions can be made.
Perhaps, if Email can be kept in a real database, then the client issues
become more a matter of taste, as you posit.
Right now, I'd like to have my next move satisfy me for a couple more
years, at least. Basically, I'm a cli guy; but, x has gotten a lot
Are there Email clients with database hooks? mysql? postgres?
What do you think?
Dare to fix things before they break . . .
Our capacity for understanding is inversely proportional to how much we
think we know. The more I know, the more I know I don't know . . .
