FetchYahoo did the trick, liberating my three years of mail from y!. When combined with the mail spools I've had stored on CD since college, I've now got 6 1/2 years of email archived and properly sorted on my new iMac. Thanks to nathanr for his mbox-to-applemail converter script.

Somewhere in St. Louis (or possibly a New Jersey landfill) there's a set of mboxes on 3.5" floppy that contain another 4 years of emails from my very first ISP, shell-tastic CRL. One day I will be whole.

In the meantime, I've taken this opportunity to switch email to .Mac - the first time I've ever paid for email - and can now be reached at
