I have a large mbox importation from Yahoo Groups to execute (there are around 100 .mbox.00xxx files to import). First, I believe I’m to use the
[import_scripts/mbox.rb](https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/script/import_scripts/mbox.rb) for this, correct?
Secondly, I need to somehow attribute these posts in the threads with users in the system. There are several thousand users and 99% of them have not yet created accounts in Discourse. What is the method by which to go about associating these emails to accounts? Do I need to create unactivated accounts first in some fashion and then import the messages to their threads?
Just wanting to get a comprehensive overview before I dig in here.
