Import into Apple's mail.app Apps
Apple has provided scripts to import your mail from your current mail program to the mail.app. It even has a script for Entourage and it works flawlessly! Just don't click on the Apple Script icon in the dock while it's working because it'll give you a funny error. Just let it do its thing, continue surfing (gotta love multi-tasking) and it'll tell you when it's finished. Too bad it doesn't import rules as well. Here's the link:

Address Book import?
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 26, '01 12:21:55AM

I ran the apple scripts to import my mail from Entrourage. It worked fine, as long as I just let the thing sit.


I exported my contacts from Microsoft Entourage, and tried to import them into the mail.app, but no luck.

Any hints?

Address Book import?
Authored by: torifile on Mar 26, '01 12:43:16AM

I just tried and it worked fine. I exported my Entourage contacts then opened the Addressbook.app and told it to import the exported file. Remember that the addressbook is system wide (as is the spellcheck) and it'll work with mail.app. Try that.

Address Book import?

I re-checked, and you're right, it imports SOME of my contacts, but not all.

Any other ideas?
