    The situation is this:
    I am totally new to Apple. Just got a new MacBook Air the other day. I have over 12GB of email files in Outlook on my old computer. It goes through GoDaddy.

    How do I best transfer my email from my Outlook to my MacBook Air? I want to bring all of it in. Should I import into a Gmail account and then import into my Apple?

    Thanks!

    Google something like "transfer outlook to Mac" or "export outlook to Mac". There are several ways, some using paid for apps, some using free programs like Thunderbird. Also search in here for outlook this comes up quite often.

    If he has "over 12GB of email files in Outlook on my old computer" then its POP I'd think :D
