Could someone tell me the best way to transfer unix style 'mbox' mail files

while sitting on the couch at home ;)

This process is fairly easy to do on my PalmV by converting the mail box
file to an MH folder then syncing with pilot-link via my Linux machine. BUT,
since this is the only task that I'm still using my Pilot for, I'd like to
figure out a way to accomplish this on my MP2100...

I use Mac/Windows/Linux machines daily, so I'm not tied to any OS, nor am I
tied to any Newton mail program. If it comes down to it, I'm not opposed to
writing scripts to convert the mail to an intermediate form if that'll help,
but I don't want to reinvent the wheel here.

My NewtDump program already downloads mail from the Newton to an "mbox" file, and I have had requests to add the ability to upload messages to the inbox for sending.

Also, have you looked at Newtonlink for Linux? don't have a link handy just search for it on
