I asked you what the package name was.  I told you that I cannot find it. 

[liveuser@localhost-live ~]$ dnf search mailutils

My mail is in Maildir format.  It is not in mbox format.

I use bluehome.net, which stores mail in Maildir format, but I am sure Google 
Maildir format for its inboxes, too.

Right now, I am using the webmail Webmin interface.  Sometimes I use Evolution. 
times I use Thunderbird.  I just used OfflineIMAP to fetch all my mail into 
~/Mail/ on
my local machine.
