    so i got a new computer and i still want to save the emails from the old one.

    i tried saving as but can only do one file at a time and i have over 200 to do.

    i tried going on my gmail and marking all the messages as unread.

    i tried just copy and pasting them.

    but nothing is working.

    i have gone on the support section on and used the info but thats the 1st thing i tried (saving as)

    there has to be an easy way of doing this.

    please help.

    o ya tis my first thread ya no

    What old computer?
    What new computer?
    What OS Old / New?
    What mail program Old / New?

    If your old machine was an OSX machine, when you set up OSX on the new machine did you use the migration assistant with a Firewire cable to bring over your old machine's User data (I assume not)?
