Is there a inbuilt way or a script that can do this

This process cannot be scripted.  If you open the VB editor, you can click File > Import File and pull files back in.  I expect you can select more than one file at a time, but I'm not certain.

No it only alows to select 1 bas file at a time.

In times when the machine is rebuilt or given the bas files to others it becomes difficult to import 1 by 1...

Any other ideas...

There aren't any other options.  I suppose you could use copy and paste to merge all of your bas files into a single file and then import it.  That might not work well though since it'd dump all of your code into a single module.  

When I move to a new computer or rebuild my existing one, I make a copy of the Outlook file that stores the code and drop it on the new system  No importing or exporting.  That file is named VbaProject.OTM and is in the folder C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.  Part of that path is in a hidden folder, so be sure to set Explorer to view hidden files and folders.
