I've made the switch! So far I've been very impressed however email remains a mystery. I've spent days trying to figure it out and no luck.
Basically on my PC I've got Outlook 2007 that I use to manage my email. The actual mail (.pst file) is located on my local file server.
I managed to get a utility to convert the pst file to Apple mbox files, which Apple Mail will read.
However, I'm not digging apple mail. I tried using Entourage, and find that to be pathetic (can't insert links or any html support in email!).
So I'm thinking Thunderbird is what I'll use. However, I can't for the life of me get it to find the mbox files.
And, I'd like to keep the mbox files on my server for backup purposes.
So simple! I'm used to having to export and import 5 times to get the right format. I didn't think it could be that easy.
usually when I find I can't do something, I discover I have been "trying too hard" and the answer is usually something incredibly simple because I never bothered to read the "HELP" section or just assumed it was going to be difficult.
I was a Eudora user for many years and having migrated to using Apple MAIL, I am very happy with it and IMAP.
