Import mbox / eml

Postby newfan » 26 Feb 2011 15:57

Hi,

I am finding very difficult to import mails from mbox / eml. I am using seamonkey but want to shift to si.mail. however when i try to import mail using si.mail wizard i get stuck at step 3. I dont have any list in select mailbox to import and without that i cannot proceed. I tried using eml files and mbox but in vain.

any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks

Hi

You should point it to the directory where mailbox files are located it should find them automatically then.

I tried following got it to work partially...i mean it did import emails but only 1email


Changed folder options to disable files with known extensions.
rename inbox files to inbox.mbx
then i got the list in select mailbox to import...

So does it means seamonkey files or import export files are not mbox files. but in import / export tool it does mention to export folder as mbox.

any advise??

Hi,

For eml you have to select a different option in import dialog.
As for mbox importing. Hm It should work, will try once again to import messages from Thunderbird test environment.
