Move PC Outlook email to Mail.app
Authored by: goochrules on Jul 18, '07 10:11:04AM

I have Outlook 2002 running on Windows XP SP2 in Parallels for Mac (build 3214).
I installed Thunderbird on Windows, and it was able to import everything from Outlook just fine.
I installed Thunderbird on OS X and copied the profile folder over, and everything again looks fine.
When I try to have Mail.app import Thunderbird's files (either by choosing 'Mozilla/Netscape' or 'Other' during the import), I end up with more or less the correct directory structure, but only one email per directory, which contains every message that should be in the directory, including base64 encoded attachments.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
