I wanted to get outlook express . I went to mactopia but it said for os8.1 to 9.x I need it for Jag 10.2 is it not out for jag yet. Also I was reading about make sure you have aladdin stuffit expander . Should I assume I can't get outlook? I have outlook express on my pc and just wanted to read my mail on my mac. my pc died and is going in for repairs. So I just thought I could transfer my messages to my mac!<br><br>I'll be out after New Years !

Nope, none for Jag. I don't have any OS9 so I emailed a few key emails to myself then upgraded to Jag and opened them in mail.app. You can export the addressbook and convert it to addressbook in Jag. It is step by step. Let me know if you need them.<br><br>
Yeah, it'll run in Classic, but I don't know if the new mail notification will bring Classic to the foreground if you happen to be in X at that moment. Doable, but probably not the cleanest option. Besides, Mail is so much more elegant and intuitive the OE.<br><br>
I think I used it in Classic for a day or two when I first got OSX and while I was playing w/Mail. Or maybe I was just booting into 9. Can't recall. (old age, y'know — the RAM is usually the first thing to go )<br><br>
You can import mailboxes from Outlook Express directly into Mail.app in Jaguar. Go to the File menu in Mail.app, and you'll see an "Import" option. When you choose it, you'll find that one of the choices is to import from OE. Addresses you can import into the Address Book, but you have to make vcards from the addresses first. I honestly forget if you can do that with OE.<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
