Hello. I'm trying to move email from my old iBook G4 PPC (OSX 10.3.9, Mail 1.2.1) to my macBook Intel Core Duo (OSX 10.4.10, Mail 2.1.1). I follow these steps:
1. boot the iBook as a fireWire drive connected to the macBook
2. start Mail on the macBook and chose Import
3. navigate to the iBook drive to User > Library > Mail > Mailboxes
4. select all the mailboxes
5. It says they all import OK
6. look at the mailbox view folder list and it all looks peachy
7. click on any one of those folders, and there are NO EMAILS
8. quit Mail
9. reboot Mail
10. The supposedly imported mailboxes are GONE
I await your orders.
Thanks,

Voila! Thanks; that did the trick...
I have to say that replacing the Mail folder like that sounded incredibly dubious, being across Mail app versions, OS X versions, and LittleEndian / BigEndian file types. I made a duplicate of the MacBook Mail folder before replacing it with the iBook Mail folder. No need, I guess; it worked. Go figure! Still it leaves one wondering why importing did not work, and why Apple did not put your instructions in Mail Help. Or did they? I didn't find that anywhere.
Thank you,
