• Unable to move mac OS Mojave v10.14.6's Mail app's local e-mail copies to local Mac's folders offline?

    Hello.

    My client lost most (thousands) of his e-mails on his IMAP servers, but he still has most of them as local
    copies in his old 2012 13.3" MacBook Pro (MBP)'s mac OS Mojave v10.14.6's Mail app when I checked offline
    (no wifi connection for Internet). I tried to move his thousands e-mails to new local folders, but they
    didn't move at all. They get stuck at the first one. I am trying to save them before he uses his MBP's and
    to his iPhone 11 Pro Max's Mail apps online again. I am hoping I can put them back on his IMAP servers and
    iPhone with this method.

    Thank you for reading and hopefully answering soon. :)

    Right-click: "Export Mailbox..."

    Assuming that works, File menu: "Import Mailboxes..."

    Wow, quick answer. I like! That worked. I have most of the local e-mails exported and imported. Now, I
    just need put them back into his IMAP servers and his iPhone which will take a while (all night?).

    I just realized something. Is it possible to do the same with iTunes' local back up which is even more
    recent than his Mail in his MBP? I don't see a way to tell iTunes to restore ONLY Mail.

    if mac , time machine will do that. if email connect to clound and it will upload if referring to email (files eg eml files).
    However, no need for imap account unless you used pop and DELETED then yes you need to reimport as others have said.
    If only been using imap no need to transfer it will be email server, if you dont see emails try a search becasue some apps only get headers of 200 at first
