I have a large e-mail Database from Entourage 2004 containing about 30.000 mails (>1 GB large).
I’m working with Entourage 2004 v11.4.0
Apple Mail.app 4.5
MacOS X 10.6.8
a) to switch from Entourage to Apple Mail and
b) import all the old e-mails into DevonThink to sort them, process them, etc.
I have extensively used categories and flags to sort the mails in Entourage and I want to preserve this information.
When I import Mails in Apple Mail.app from Entourage, all this seems to be lost:
all imported Mails are unread, not flagged and there are no categories (as Mail does not have a similar concept AFAIK).
(BTW I’m also having problems that not all mails are imported, it seems that at a certain point only the directory structure is imported, but the mails are not copied any more, so I end up with empty folders)
When I try to use the import email feature in DTPro, the read and flagged status seems to be transferred correctly, but the categories are lost.
Is there a way to create a tag for each category and assign it to the e-mails?
That would be very helpful.
(Or does there exist a script where I could do that the other way around and export my e-mails from within Entourage 2004 to DTPO, preserving folder structure, read/flagged status and create a tag for each category??
