Importing Postbox 7.x messages into UR 6.x (64-bit)

Since the UR extension for importing PostBox messages has died with Postbox 6+, does anyone know how to import Postbox 7.x messages to UR?

If it can export to .eml or mbox format, you can import those into UR.

Thanks for the quick reply. However, I already knew about .eml, etc..

PostBox 7.x has no files with an .mbx or .eml extension . . and no export facility.

Did some exploring though, and found the email files. They have no extension and are located in the following folder:

users/(your user name here)/appdata/roaming/postboxapp/profiles/Oc7in9s9.default/mail/local folders/

Each message folder inside that folder has, for each PostBox folder two associated, similarly named files: one has no extension; the other has a .msf extension

I store most of the messages I keep in the Local Folders folders. If anyone else stores them elsewhere, replace local folders with the name of the folder where you keep them.

After experimenting a bit, I found out how to import the messages to UR.

(1) For the messages I wanted to import, I dropped copies of the message files with blank extensions to another folder. (not the .msf file)

(2) I then gave all those files a .mbx extension, and they imported just fine into UR.
