I have set up a new SmarterMail account for my client and wish to import their existing email on his device into it including Inbox, sub directories, Sent items etc.
The client can supply an export from Mac Mail (an Mbox file) which I can convert to IMAP using a tool called BitRecover MBOX Converter Wizard.
I can copy then upload that file up to the SmarterMail account on the server.
Does this seem like a reasonable way to do this job or am I making hard work of a simple task?
And once I have uploaded the emails to the server do I need to delete the account on the client's Mac and set up a new account or just change the account's mail server settings?
I'd like to avoid duplicate 'unread' copies of email being created in the existing email account on his Mac etc.
Thanks for your help.
