NAME
       readpst - convert PST (MS Outlook Personal Folders) files to mbox and other formats

SYNOPSIS
       readpst [-C default-charset] [-D] [-M] [-S] [-V] [-b] [-c format] [-d debug-file] [-e]
	       [-h] [-j jobs] [-k] [-m] [-o output-directory] [-q] [-r] [-t output-type-codes]
	       [-u] [-w] pstfile

DESCRIPTION
       readpst is a program that can read an Outlook PST (Personal Folders) file and convert it
       into an mbox file, a format suitable for KMail, a recursive mbox structure, or separate
       emails.

OPTIONS
       -C default-charset
	   Set the character set to be used for items with an unspecified character set.

       -D
	   Include deleted items in the output.

       -M
	   Output messages in MH (rfc822) format as separate files. This will create folders as
	   named in the PST file, and will put each email together with any attachments into its
	   own file. These files will be numbered from 1 to n with no leading zeros. This format
	   has no from quoting.

       -S
	   Output messages into separate files. This will create folders as named in the PST
	   file, and will put each email in its own file. These files will be numbered from 1 to
	   n with no leading zeros. Attachments will also be saved in the same folder as the
	   email message. The attachments for message $m are saved as $m-$name where $name is
	   (the original name of the attachment, or 'attach$n' if the attachment had no name),
	   where $n is another sequential index with no leading zeros. This format has no from
	   quoting.

       -V
	   Show program version and exit.

       -b
	   Do not save the attachments for the RTF format of the email body.

       -c format
	   Set the Contact output mode. Use -cv for vcard format or -cl for an email list.

       -d debug-file
	   Specify name of debug log file. The log file is now an ascii file, instead of the
	   binary file used in previous versions.

       -e
	   Same as the M option, but each output file will include an extension from (.eml, .ics,
	   .vcf). This format has no from quoting.

       -h
	   Show summary of options and exit.

       -j jobs
	   Specifies the maximum number of parallel jobs. Specify 0 to suppress running parallel
	   jobs. Folders may be processed in parallel. Output formats that place each mail
	   message in a separate file (-M, -S, -e) may process the contents of individual folders
	   in parallel.

       -k
	   Changes the output format to KMail. This format uses mboxrd from quoting.

       -m
	   Same as the e option, but write .msg files also

       -o output-directory
	   Specifies the output directory. The directory must already exist, and is entered after
	   the PST file is opened, but before any processing of files commences.

       -q
	   Changes to silent mode. No feedback is printed to the screen, except for error
	   messages.

       -r
	   Changes the output format to Recursive. This will create folders as named in the PST
	   file, and will put all emails in a file called "mbox" inside each folder. These files
	   are then compatible with all mbox-compatible email clients. This format uses mboxrd
	   from quoting.

       -t output-type-codes
	   Specifies the item types that are processed. The argument is a sequence of single
	   letters from (e,a,j,c) for (email, appointment, journal, contact) types. The default
	   is to process all item types.

       -u
	   Sets Thunderbird mode, a submode of recursive mode. This causes two extra .type and
	   .size meta files to be created. This format uses mboxrd from quoting.

       -w
	   Overwrite any previous output files. Beware: When used with the -S switch, this will
	   remove all files from the target folder before writing. This is to keep the count of
	   emails and attachments correct.

FROM QUOTING
       Output formats that place each mail message in a separate file (-M, -S, -e, -m) don't do
       any from quoting. Output formats that place multiple email messages in a single file (-k,
       -r, -u) now use mboxrd from quoting rules. If none of those switches are specified, the
       default output format uses mboxrd from quoting rules, since it produces multiple email
       messages in a single file. Earlier versions used mboxo from quoting rules for all output
       formats.
