Mac Mail Equivilalent to Exporting to PST
Posted on 2012-04-13
I'm a Windows man, barely touched a Mac! I know what I want to do but unsure of the Mac layout.
Basically I have a client's Apple Mac laptop which has POP3 mailbox on it. We are cancelling this and moving to a different POP3 provider.
So, I would like to backup all of her current settings/messages/contacts before migrating.
She is using the "Mail" app and I see 3 the following structure:
On My Mac
...lots of these
I have done a CTRL-Click on Inbox, Sent and Trash and selected Archive to .mbox file.
Does that incorporate the "On My Mac" folders?
I'm thinking I should be able to just change the pop3 account settings to the new provider, and thats it as all the messages are still on the laptop (not like Exchange which mirrors what is on the server), but I want to have a backup just in case.
