Import Outlook Express (PC) emails into Mail
Authored by: xebrawerx on Feb 12, '09 12:47:20PM

That hint was absurdly tedious.

Here's what I did yesterday using IMAP email to accomplish the same:
1. Created a temporary email account with your ISP,
3. Created a folder structure in that account that mimicked the end-user's structure,
3. Setup an IMAP account in Outlook Express to point to the temp email account,
4. Copied the messages from the OE In Box and other folders to the same places in the IMAP account,
5. Setup in OS X Mail the ability to retrieve the IMAP mail,
6. Drag the messages to a local folder structure,
7. Delete the IMAP account and settings on the Mac and PC that pointed to it.

Far less tedious. Only have to be patient enough to allow your emails to upload then download on IMAP.
