    Hello there,
    I would like to know which format IM saves it emails in. (Eg. *.mbx,*.eml or whatever).
    The reason why I ask is because (and, who knows, someone might be able to help here) I would like to import all my stuff from either Mozilla Thunderbird or Pocomail v3 (or even both, if possible) into IM.
    Does anyone know of a way or a program which will do that for me?

    Hi mr_dee & welcome to Wilders,
    I don't remember which format IM saves in, but I do know it's a proprietary format.
    Not mbx or eml in any way. :doubt:
    Do have a look at Incredimail Help articles too.
    And here you'll find a lot of tips: IncrediMail Tips, Tricks and Secrets
    IMHO Thunderbird or Poco are more secure then IM and not so resource hungry too.
    IM installs a lot of stuff inside your registry and is a pain to remove from your system.
    Also don't forget that their support is almost non-existent.

    Have you tried Poco 4 already?
    I've the current beta installed on my system. :cool:
    I always use Mailbag Assistant, but it's not free either.

    It's your choice to migrate to IM, so I hope that helps. ;)
