    Hi!

    Does anyone know how I can convert eMails from MAC to Windows.

    In Windows Outlook Express has a Folder I have Files like posteingang.dbx, and so on.

    In Outlook Express 5.0 (Mac) I can only export contacts.

    How can I export the eMails that I can import them in Outlook Express 6.0 Windows?

    TIA

    Thomas

    i've solved the problem.

    I started Outlook Express 5.0 on the MAC.
    Then I created a new folder. I marked the eMails witch I wanted to extract and drag them into the new created folder.

    Then i could see the whole eMails in the folder.
    The Filename is the text witch stands in the subject of each eMail.

    After that i copied them to the Windows PC.

    There I started Outlook Express 6.0

    I drag all the eMails witch where in the new folder into the in-box folder.

    There may be some eMails witch habe a dot in the subject. There you have to make a new file extension (with .eml), e.g. "news from www.macrumors.com" -> "news from www.macrumors.com.eml"

    Then you can drag them into Outlook Express 6.0

    Maybe it could help someone.
