Quick way to convert Mbox mailboxes to Maildir format

A quick way to convert Mbox mailboxes to Mbox format is to use mb2md.
Install it in Ubuntu/Debian using:

sudo aptitude install mb2md

To make the convertion use:

mb2md -m

From man:

       -m        If this is used then the source will be the single mailbox at /var/spool/mail/blah for user blah and the destination mail‐
                 box will be the "destdir" mailbox itself.

Nice and simple!
