mbx2mbox attempts to convert Microsoft's proprietary .mbx and .dbx format mailboxes to the standard RFC822 mailboxes used by programs like Pine, Eudora, and Netscape.

Release Notes: The constructed "From " line assumes EDT instead of the machine's timezone (which makes the test cases pass in timezones other than EDT), a generalized start-of-email pattern to improve dbx processing, and a fix for a potential infinite loop in mailbox reading.
Release Notes: Use of Date::Manip to construct the date for the "From" header correctly based on the "From:" and "Date:" headers, new tests, restructured code, and moved the project to SourceForge.
Release Notes: Improved parsing of emails, generated header "From email@example.com" now uses sender's email address, and quoted headers are no longer mistakenly processed.
Release Notes: Improved parsing of emails at the expense of speed for mailboxes with large attachments, a -c flag for more aggressive removal of odd characters in email bodies, and a debugging mode (-d).
Release Notes: Now supports Outlook's .dbx files.
