I don't know what the issue could be. The code is doing

    for msg in mbox:
        msgs += 1
        mdate = msg['date'] and mktime_tz(parsedate_tz(msg['date']))

And the above error seems to be saying that msg is not a mailbox.Message
object, but I don't know what that could be. I have made a change in the
script changing line 144 from

            mbox = Mailbox.Mailbox(mboxf)


            mbox = Mailbox.mbox(mboxf)

The former was not strictly correct, but worked in my tests. The online
scripts have been updated.

If this doesn't fix it, I think I'll need access to the actual mailbox
to debug this.

That's not relevant to this problem.
