Subject Re: Indexing existing email archives
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2006 11:46:14 GMT
The mail archives and saved mail folders can be opened up and read as a 
text file using textpad or wordpad. Will it be possible to index them as 
it is? The mail client is Thunderbird Mailbox.

If I have to use third party software is there anything you can suggest?
