Create mbox files from Entourage 2008 folders Apps
I just noticed a neat trick in Entourage 2008: if you drag a folder out of the folder list, and onto your desktop, it creates a .mbox file just for that folder.

This is a good way to move emails from Entourage to many other formats, especially if you're only concerned about a single folder.

Does this also bring over the extensions and preserve the rich text formatting?

I know switching a Windows Outlook with thousands of HTML messages and attachments to Apple's Mail was difficult, but I did eventually find a fairly simple solution.

The big problem with this, and it has been a problem since Entourage X, is that any sub-folders are ignored. You must drag each folder - and each sub-folder - to the desktop individually.

This has existed since the first version of Entourage. As mentioned above, it doesn't capture sub-folders.
