I have recently retired and have an iMac running SL from my office with a large Mail database. I'm currently using Mavericks on my home iMac and am looking for a way to convert/archive the mailboxes from my work computer in such a way that I can access them as needed from my Mavericks (and later) Mail app. I use POP on both the SL and Mavericks machines. I am aware of the standard Mail archive process, but that does not handle attachments well (if at all). I'm also aware of the Email Archiver app, but I don't feel like shelling out $25 for something that (a) may not do what I want and (b) I only need once. I had thought of rolling my own converter/archiver using python, but it looks like this would be a laborious process fraught with all kinds of pitfalls and deaddrops. I'm open to suggestion as to possible solutions.
