Up until 2 days ago, I was running an old PC (Windows 7, Office 2007) alongside my old (2008 MBP, OS x 10.6). Finally, the PC has died a death (motherboard) and is beyond repair. I have removed the HD and put it into an external case, which I can plug into my MBP via USB, and it seems I can read the files etc.

My question is - How do I transfer the emails that are on the old hard drive onto my MBP and put them into Mac mail or Entourage?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

George

Were you using the Windows Mail program or Outlook on your PC? It makes a difference on how the email messages are gathered and transferred. Either way, it's doable.
