Closing this thread:)

I have installed claws and have roughly 160k emails imoprted. Still
working to get all them imported, but its a good start. As you guys all
stated, 160k emails is a piece of cake for claws.

It runs fast like hell:)

thanks for kind help - it motivated to perform the migration finally.
