Export mails etc. to Outlook

Postby Victor Dewsbery » Wed Oct 28, 2009 11:49 pm

I have finally decided to move all my mails over from Barca 2.8.0.4400 to MS Outlook 2007.
(This is due to a number of problems including HTML handling, clumsy and complicated syncing between desktop and laptop, no prospects of mobile phone syncing etc.)
How can I get my mails, addresses etc. to move?
I have many folders and sub-folders, and I have a number of pending jobs that I will have to send back to clients as replies to their e-mails.

Please don't tell me that I have to manually change/export every single folder.

Sorry to hear about that. :?

Have a look at Exporting PocoMail.

Unfortunately, you'll have to recreate the structure into Outlook and move those messages to the right folder.
Also filters can't be exported, nor can it be done in other email programs. You'll have to recreate it from scratch.

Hope that helps anyway & good luck with it. ;)

I did, and I am still confused.
What format should I use to export the mailboxes?
Can I export them in Eudora format, even though I don't have Eudora? Or is there a better format to use?

I can handle recreating the folder structure, but how do I "move those messages"? (i.e. from where?)

Shouldn't be too difficult.

You can export your folders in the formats shown in File > Export > Folder.

Or you could export your messages as EML. Next drag & drop them into Outlook Express/Windows Mail.
Afterwards import from OE or WM. :)

You can create rules to move those messages from your InBox. By creating those rules you can select to move all corresponding messages to its location.
There's a possibility to export your filters to a txt-file, so you can recreate those rules easily, although I did it with SnagIt, so that's not free.

It's not ideal, but migrating never is. :?
