I don't know how to preserve your *.snm files, in fact I've often had to delete
those pesky index files to force the mailclients to rebuild them to get rid of
the garbled text. Kmail, XFmail, Win32-Netscape a.o. all use their own
indexformats. But atleast the unix mbox format is 99% compatible, Outlook
Express is completely incompatible. The main reason I migrated completely to
Linux was because I could get my mailboxes to work under Linux but not under
