I've been using Mail.app since I upgraded to OS X, but I used to use Outlook Express 5.0.3 when I was using OS 9.  I really need to read my old email messages from the identity folder I backed up to my backup hard disk a long time ago.  I tried to import them using Outlook Expres, but it didn't work.  Any idea?

As long as the user data file is in the right place and you have Classic and OE installed using the File>Import Mailboxes from mail.app should be smooth.

I went through this same problem once.  I ended up using entourage as an intermediary.  Entourage is part of the Office X suite for the mac, and I believe comes in a 30 day demo version if you don't have it.  I was then able to convert it to use in apple's Mail program.

I think the format I ended up using was mbox

I did find a thorough description on a website too.  Check it out:

Check it out, and good luck!
