    ok archived and installed Tiger and i opened Mail and it started importing emails (from former Mail). But it always stops at 7882 og 9977 messages imported. it just wont continue and finish the importing!! its just stuck and does so everytime.

    Wait for 10.4.1. I hate to give such advice, but this is a known bug in Tiger Mail.

    but can i do this manually? i cant find the old mail folders and i cant open mail without it starting to do the import. if i cancel the import it quits!

    The old Mail folders are located here: (your home folder)/Library/Mail

    Moving those should stop Mail from trying to import your mail.

    Mail 2?

    i did that when i did a clean install when i installed Tiger, i drag the mail folder from my HOME library in Panther and then drag it back to the same place into the HOME librart in Tiger and it works :D
