there should be a plug-in that could convert your mbox mails into the
format Clauws-Mail uses.

I forgot this already. The main problem for me was that new e-mails did
not get reported. I have had to go through all my folders to check for
new e-mails. Of course, I missed at least one of them.

It is not that crucial. You just notice it. It becomes a problem above
100 000 e-mails in a folder. It is just the time it takes to switch
between folders when reading new e-mails. I see this problem only on
folders containing the e-mails from mailing lists.
