Import selected folder from other install

Postby Casey » Tue Nov 29, 2011 4:36 am

I have been archiving messages into a sub folder titled Archives for years. I recently noticed that this folder no longer exists on my main computer's PocoMail program but fortunately still exists in my laptop's install.

I do not see an option in the import wizard for importing selected folders from another install and am wondering what the best way to proceed should be. I do not want to overwrite the other folders' data.

Wizard imports all data. for individual folder use File > Import > Messages, I believe the Unix mailbox type of folder import should work for Pocomail folders as well. (In that case I believe index file will not be imported, it contains some special data like mark, note, read status,.....).

But fastest way would probably be to copy the files manually. For each folder you wish to copy, files of the same name as the folder shoudl be copied with extensions .mbx, .idb and .dat.
If you don't know where they are located (and where they should be copied two for the other install), run from menu Help > Email support, report will be generated, check the content of lines
AppPath= and MailboxRoot=Mail\.

Also, you might need to create the Archive folder manually first, by right-clicking in the Folders tree and "New Folder".
