How do I move archived folders back to the server Mac Mail App / Kerio?

Hi,

I am looking at ways by which I can take archived email stored locally on an OS X Mountain Lion Mail App and move them back to the Kerio mail server. The reason I want to do this is that the company has decided to switch to Outlook 2011 for Mac as their preferred client and there appears to be no easy way to import archived mail from Mail App to Outlook 2011.

I have tried simply dragging and dropping the local stored email folders back to the server but that doesn't appear to work, am I missing something?

If it is setup as IMAP .. then you can copy emails back into the Inbox or its subfolders .. if setup as POP then you cannot copy the files backwards (you have to use IMAP)

Copying files back into the Inbox should work but it will take quite some time to move emails back to the Kerio Mailserver.

To test, copy just a couple of emails ... wait a few minutes and then use the Kerio webmail interface to confirm that the emails are back in the inbox.

Copying hundreds or thousands of emails with attachments can take hours and probably should be done in batches of a few hundred at a time just in case uploads timeout.

Thanks, doing a few folders at a time did the trick
