mbox format -> PST, or -> pop server

If I have a directory full of a large number of text files representing email
messages in raw form (i.e. full headers and MIME-encoded message), and
I want to convert them to a .pst file, what is the easiest way to do that?

Alternatively, if I can load them into a simple pop server on our intranet and
pull them into outlook that way, that would also work.  What is a good pop
server to use for this?

If they have no extension, they might be Netscape Mail (or Mozilla). If so (or if similar), you could put them into the mail subfolder of one of those two programs. (Be sure to match the existing folder structure, etc.) Open Netscape/Mozilla and then you will see the mail. One advantage of using Netscape is that you can import directly into Outlook.

Alternate 'last resort' method:
How large are they? When I've done this in the past, I used a tool that parsed the file (based on the email header) into single emails which were saved as .eml files. These are easily imported into Outlook Express. If they are small enough, you could do this manually.

Good luck!
