readpst -o /output/folder /server/path/user.pstBefore you can use readpst, it needs to be built via libpst on the system that will run any scripts. Download libpst from http://alioth.debian.org/frs/?group_id=30390. This can be done with curl:
curl http://alioth.debian.org/frs/download.php/2492/libpst-0.5.3.tar.gz --O libpst-0.5.3.tar.gzNext, extract the tar:
tar -zxvf libpst-0.5.3.tar.gzThen cd into the new directory:
cd libpst-0.5.3Then make libpst:
makeAnd now readpst should be available to convert mailboxes. This could be run from a centralized server or distributed to clients.

ftp ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-latest.tar.gzNext, extract the tar file using the tar command:
tar -xvzf wget-latest.tar.gzYou will then have a directory called wget- followed by the version of wget you just downloaded (currently 1.12). Let’s cd into that directory:
cd wget-1.12Then run the configure script:
./configureThen make the installer:
makeThen run the installer (with elevated privileges:
make installYou will then have the wget command located in /usr/local/bin/wget. To use it, simply use wget, followed by the path to the file you’d like to download using the –tries option:
wget –tries=10 http://www.krypted.com/scripts/wget.shThere are a lot of options for wget, but some that I use more than others include –user= and –password=, which allows you to authenticate to a host by specifying a username and a password (respectively of course) and –limit-rate, which funny enough, let’s you throttle the speeds of transfers so as not to saturate your bandwidth. I also frequently need to use the -r operator, which allows for recursive downloads and the -o operator which outputs to a log file. Overall wget is one of the most useful commands around, and hopefully after reading this you’ll download it and get used to using it (if you weren’t already).
