Import mailboxes from Thunderbird into Mail.app
Authored by: caj on Jul 04, '05 11:21:01AM

I have had this same problem. After running the script, I have opened Mail.app, selected File/Import, have navigated to the directory where my newly cleaned files are only to find that Mail.app shows them as greyed out and unselectable.

Anyone have a solution or at least an explanation to this?

Import mailboxes from Thunderbird into Mail.app

Like the previous user said, all you have to do is select File -> Import, then go into the directory that your *.mbox files are located. They will all be greyed out, but just click on the 'Continue' button anyway. This will show all the *.mbox files and you can check off which ones you want to import.

Throw the mbox files in a folder (with the other associated files) and select the folder in the Mail Other import dialog.
