Import Outlook Express (PC) emails into Mail
Authored by: woodstone on Mar 31, '04 11:12:25AM


Wow, that's quite a lot of work.

I used a program called DbxConv. This program converts Outlook Express mailboxes (dbx) to the format used by Apple's Mail (mbox).

For me, the whole proces took about 10 minutes!

Import Outlook Express (PC) emails into Mail

Thanks for the info. I also gave the utility a try and as far as I can tell, the utility does the same job. Yes, it was a lot of work doing it via Entourage; I wish I came across this utility earlier (I searched in Google but missed this one).

I had a small hitch either with the utility or Apple Mail--Apple Mail imported my Inbox.mbx (1030 msgs) as 1 big msg. So I imported instead into Entourage and it worked properly there; then I used Entourage to generate the mbox to import to Mail.

Hey this seems like a great idea. This is what I tried doing, but it did not work. I downloaded DbxConv. Since the DbxConv was a WinZip file, I extracted it to a new folder on the desktop. I went to the New Folder on the desktop and I saw the file in there DbxConv.exe. I coppied a outlook email file to the New Folder next to DbxConv.exe. I went to msdos and I typed in dbxconv *.dbx, and then I get a message saying: "bdxconv is not recognized as an internal or external command." I dont know if I am doing something wrong or what is happening. If you ave any information to give me please do. I would really appriciate that. My e mail address is goran_nanic@yahoo.com. Once agin if you have any information on this please let me know.

Thank you...
