    Hi all,

    I left my old job a few months ago, but I'd like to keep all of the e-mails. I haven't deleted the account out of Mail.App because I don't want it to delete all of the e-mails. Is there a good way to export the whole thing to some searchable repository someplace? Thanks!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    This was exactly what I needed - I downloaded the demo, and it's working great. I'll go purchase it in the Mac App Store after my import completes... Next question: how do i totally obliterate every trace of mail in Mail.App? If I delete the account, will that actually delete all the e-mail? I want to make sure I fully free up the space and get rid of all of it so that if I choose to use Mail.App for a future job, it'll start completely fresh. THANKS!!!
