I’m the developer of a macOS application that archives emails from different mail clients. Thunderbird is supported. Some enterprising user has mailboxes with the pipe character ("|").
How do I decode those? Whatever I rename a mailbox in Thunderbird to everything after the pipe character becomes 8 characters.
“something | else and even more” becomes “something 8a5ce7dc”.
I poked a bit around in the files. One reference I found were to the SQLite database. Where the “something 8a5ce7dc” was together with the original name of the mailbox. Another reference was in the “panacea.dat” file. I was astonished that the really very special Mork format still is in use.
Is there something that I have overlooked?
Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Regards
