I am uncertain as to how this can be done from OLEX but have you considered forwarding all of the OLEX emails to the Thunderbird email account? Save time and much more automated...

Thunderbird does not give the option to import from OE on a MAC - only Eudura and Netscape Comm.

Hello libertyga,

Install Thunderbird on the PC and import from OE to Thunderbird. Once that's done, backup and move your profile folder to the Mac.

Hope this helps!
