LEI-CONVERT(1)             public-inbox user manual             LEI-CONVERT(1)

NAME
       lei-convert - one-time conversion from one mail format to another

SYNOPSIS
       lei convert -o OUTPUT [OPTIONS] LOCATION

       lei convert -o OUTPUT [OPTIONS] (--stdin|-)

DESCRIPTION
       Convert messages to another format.  "LOCATION" is a source of
       messages: a directory (Maildir), a file (various mbox), or a URL
       ("imap://", "imaps://", "nntp://", or "nntps://").  URLs requiring
       authentication use git-credential(1) to fill in the username and
       password.

       For a regular file, the location must have a "<format>:" prefix
       specifying one of the following formats: "mboxrd", "mboxcl2", "mboxcl",
       or "mboxo".

OPTIONS
       -F MAIL_FORMAT
       --in-format=MAIL_FORMAT
           Message input format.  Unless messages are given on stdin, using a
           format prefix with "LOCATION" is preferred.

       The following options are also supported and are described in lei-q(1).

       -o MFOLDER, --output=MFOLDER
       --lock METHOD
       --no-kw
       --torsocks=auto|no|yes
       --no-torsocks
       --proxy=PROTO://HOST[:PORT]
