    Email Help
    I downloaded this program http://www.littlemachines.com/ to move my email from Outlook to Entourage. I've created the file for the move, but I can't figure out how to import it. Any help would be truly appreciated...

    Transfer the output file you created to your Mac, start up Mail, and choose File --> Import Mailboxes.

    For some reason it won't let me import the file. Is there another way to import my .PST file?

    I finally got it to recognize the .mbox files, and now it crashes and Mail closes with an error report when it starts to import...

    In your 1st post you say you are trying to import from Outlook to Entourage.

    I browsed through the info in the link I posted in Post #4 and found this:

    Step 5. On the Mac, drag each .mbox icon (i.e. each folder you used in Outlook) from the desktop to Entourage or its icon in the Dock, and click Import on the dialog box that appears.

    for fun I just did this. I imported outlook mail boxes into thunderbird then logged back into tiger. I located the mozilla boxes on my windows partition and copied them to the desktop. I added the .mbox extension. (don't alter the file that already has an extension the one you want has no extension.) then I dragged each one into entourage. Worked like a basket of bees.

    Thanks guys!!! I was able to drag and drop the 360 mailboxes all at once. I did have to spend an hour renaming the boxes, but all and all it worked out well. Thanks for all of your help everyone!!

    Flip4Mac and/or VLC should do it.

    One more question...

    I tried to attach a 3 meg file in Entourage and it said I needed to install "Stuffit". Do I really need to spend $79 to send attachments?

    I thought stuffit was already on the system? I've got the stuffit 11 in my apps.

    I gotta question. How do I use my yahoo mailbox via the mail app. in OSX? I got yahoo and won't be getting rid of anytime soon so how or can I check my yahoomail by clicking on that cute little stamp in the dock?
