I have a client using Entourage 2008 for Mac. He currently has a POP mail account. He has multiple GBs of mail organized into over a hundred folders and subfolders. We’re talking thousands of messages. I recently installed Outlook 2012 on his machine and ran the import function while configuring mail. It appeared to bring all his Entourage mail over, but we quickly realized that while most or all of the folders were there, many of them were empty. I think the problem comes from a 2 GB limit on mail export (archive) files. The only way I can see to move all the mail is to categorize 2 GB of mail at a time and then during the export procedure, choose only the categorized messages. The problem with that is, it appears I can’t categorize whole folders of mail at a time, and I need to actually select all messages within a folder to categorize them. While that’s an option, it’s an extremely tedious and time-consuming one. Does anyone know of a good way to move the mail while retaining the folder structure? A third-party solution is acceptable. Thanks.
