I tried the first one Google listed as it appeared to be fairly simple
to set up and use.
Do a search on google for mailbox to maildir converters. Appears
to be several.
./2md-1.9 some_mail.mbox some_mail_dir
In "some_mail_dir" there will be the files, "new" "cur" and tmp.
The messages appear in new, not cur as I would like or expect, but that
gets corrected after I move the mail to maildir and start to use my mail
client on the second time after the move.
I then create a mail folder with my mail client, exit from it and move
mv some_mail_dir/* $HOME/Maildir/.someMail/.
I start my mail client and the files are there, marked as new files.
I close my mail client and open it again and notice there is NO icon for
new mail in this folder. The files which were in
$HOME/Maildir/.someMail/new are moved to $HOME/Maildir/.someMail/cur
