    Hello all,

    My wife runs all her emails through entourage. This is a HUGE memory hog and just generally a big and bulky mail client. She has an 07 black macbook running snow leopard.

    Is there an easy way to simply import ALL her mail to a apple MAIL. I get that I would have to reconfigured where her email accounts dump their mail in the future. But I'm just wondering how I would get her THOUSANDS of emails over to MAIL, and if it is even possible.

    Thanks for the help!

    Do you know which version of Entourage she is using?

    I've never really used Entourage, but there probably is a File>Export option. If you can export it into a .mbox, Apple mail should be able to import it (either through the initial wizard, or through File>Import. Below are a couple of links that should be able to help you out (although they are rather outdated).

    she has entourage 2004 for mac - specifically version 11.4 I believe. She got this computer back in June of 07 - so I'm assuming that's when she got the software. I'll check out your links.

    Thanks for the help!
