        LDIF      (LD-AP Interchange Format)
        MBOX      (Berkeley Mailbox Format)
        VCF       (vCalendar Format)
        ICS       (iCalendar Format)
        EVOLUTION (TAB or CSV Formats)
        MOZILLA   (TAB or CSV Formats)
        OUTLOOK   (TAB or CSV Formats)
        VCard     (.vcf or .gcrd Formats)

drag them down.

Of course, I leave all of my mail on my server and manage it there.
"There" being my own machine at a colo. I use procmail and mailfilter to
manage my mail server side, before I even connect an e-mail client.
