Online convert thunderbird message filters to sieve script

For many years I’ve used Outlook as my main email client but 3 years ago I switched to Thunderbird. Now its time to leave the Windows Operating System for what its worth and from now on I’am using Fedora Core 11. My former jobs depended heavily on Windows (MSSQL, IIS, ASP) but that now belongs to the past.

Currently I like to explore the possibilities of FLEX with whatever Linux based backend (BlazeDS, amfPHP, etc.) Switching dekstop OS made me deside to go webbased as far as possible, so now it’s time to replace Thunderbird for a webbased email client like Roundcube. But what about the message filters, damn I really liked those!

Since we┬┤re using a Cyrus mail server with Sieve I decided to write a simple conversion script, which works very simple: Thunderbird saves all rules for each account in a seperate file called msgFilterRules.dat* Select this file, located in the profile folder and press ‘Convert’
NB. This version only accounts for ‘or’ and ‘fileinto’ operations…


* If your using Thunderbird with more than one account you can copy this file to your other accounts to ‘copy’ the message filters ;)
