Hi there. I am trying to export my Mac Mail emails on my iMac running 10.4 to A Windows machine running xp or vista, I do not mind what email program I need to use to view them, as long as I can view them in Windows.

I have tried selecting all messages that I want, then I click file, save as, name the file and then save the messages as Raw Message Source to my external HDD but not having any luck viewing them on Windows, plus it only creates a small 600 kb file, I have selected about 150 messages - 200 messages.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks.

Everything Mac !!!

Download Thunderbird from Mozilla, set it up as your mail client and then use it to export your mail messages. Then install Thunderbird on your Windows machine and import the mail messages.

I'm sure there are other ways to do it also but with Thunderbird you can maintain folder integrity from Mac to PC.

The Mac and Windows versions of Thunderbird are free.
