It's going to die??  NOoooo!  I only barely just switched from rmail!  :-<

Hey, all my mail is still in 1000 (2000?) Babyl files.  I just discovered that 
Python has a pretty much universal email converter:

If I'm going to continue to use VM while I can, and if wherever I move next, 
I'm going to stick with emacs, what mailbox format should I be starting to move 

(Thanks for your work.  What fields are you, the maintainers, in?)

(And yes, I agree with someone else's comment that people are abandoning email, 
and for good reason.  It's not just that the security properties are terrible, 
but it can become overwhelming.  Except for dealing with e-lists, fora, and 
various businesses etc, I'm mostly on Signal, Keybase, Riot and the like.)
