Are you going to continue to use both of the original addresses and use Joe.and.an@ mainly to manage them or are you intending to abandon them?

no, i intend to delete the old accounts, and use only one, that's why i want to move the accounts; it's for  a husband and wife, - they set up separate accounts in the past, and now want to get rid of it
i think - (but probably wrongly) first to make the new account, then move the mails from the folders + contacts to the new account

Jessica, nice copy of a page on the net, ( i found that too)  but
1. In Mail view > Select email account to be moved > Open File Location.  i don't get that option

Masq i fear keeping the old accounts open for a time is not the best option here (old people)
what i'm really looking for is a way to move them in one time to the solution
very strange that you cannot copy, or move mails around....

Mahima, seems a lot of work, exporting all folders separately, but tx for the suggestion

What kind of email accounts? POP or IMAP?

originally they were pop
may i rephrase the Q ?  another option could be moving the mails to the other account, and using only one
then one account can be removed

Jessica/Mahima noticed you were both linking to the same third-party product line, what's the advantage of using them against the free built-in options in Outlook or other apps, or are you just marketing them???
