    i've tried that Eudora mail converter, but it wont work...i just want to drop all my emails from thunderbird into mail.app. renaming the file with the .mbox extension doesnt work either.

    has anyone got any ideas?

    thanks :)

    Doesn't mail just store it's stuff in mbox format? Anyway, cant you open mail, file, import, and select the mailbox?
