UnDBX is a tool to extract, recover, and undelete email messages from Outlook Express .dbx files. On first run, all messages are extracted as individual .eml files. Subsequent runs only update the output directory with new messages, and delete old .eml files that correspond to deleted messages in the .dbx file. Corrupted .dbx files (including files larger than 2GB) can be opened in recovery mode, in order to recover messages and partially undelete deleted messages. The success of recovery depends on the type and level of .dbx file corruption.
conv2047 is a very simple RFC 2047 Unicode email header field converter. It reads header lines from standard input and tries to decode or encode them. Operation modes: -d decode (MIME-Header --> UTF-8) and -e encode (UTF-8 --> MIME-Header). The -c option can concatenate multiple output lines into 1.
