    Just got back from spending the holidays with family and I saved the .emlx files for all of the e-mails I received and sent on my other iMac back home to a flash drive. Now I'm trying to figure out how I get those e-mails I saved onto the flash drive back into my Apple Mail for my iMac here at home.

    Anyone know how to do this? I tried to just drop them in the appropriate Messages folder under Library and Mail and then restart Apple Mail, but the new messages don't appear.

    Any ideas?

    In Mail, choose the mailbox you have added your .emlx files to in the sidebar, and go to menu - mailbox - restore (or such, translated from German).
