    I am trying to set up a macbook for a friend, the problem is she want's her old mails from her PC. She uses outlook ekspress. The standard export feature in Outlook did not work it just returned an error message. So i found a commandline utility called dbxcovr, to convert the .dbx files to .mbx files. I then tried to them import in mail, and it sees that there are unread messages, but when i click the folder nothing shows! I then read that the extension had to be mbox so i renamed them, but still get the same results. What am i doing wrong?
