|Author/Date||How to Merge or Import Scribe Mail Boxes?|
I have one mailbox on my PC, and another one on my USB drive.
I spent a while away from home, and now I found that both mail boxed differ quite a bit, and wish to keep messages from both boxes.
But, how can I import one box in to another, or merge both together?
I don't mind having duplicates, because I can erase those. But I don't want to lose anything.
|drag and drop usually works fine for me.
drag email messages, or mail folders into your windows explorer from one scribe (sorry, assuming windows)
and drag the exported files from windows onto one of the mail folders on the left hand tree view of the second scribe install.
(this usually works better for me then directly dragging from one scribe to another, but you could try that.)
off course there is allso the possibility of setting up a network between the two using the groupware server, but that is another story.
|Hmmm... I can't seem to drag and drop (in Windows). I drag and drop, and the cursor changes and shows the move/copy symbol. But nothing happens. The messages are not transfered, not even if only one is selected.
And copy/paste results in "Unhandled exception" in the destination Scribe.
I'll keep trying...
|I think what exo means is drop the messages into a folder first and then from there into the other Scribe. The Scribe->Scribe operation will need to be fixed in a future release.|
|yes, you need to go in 2 steps, through windows explorer, meaning a directory on your hard drive.|
|YEs, I did it in Windows and it worked perfectly: I dragged the whole folder on to the Desktop, and from there on to the other instance of Scribe.
And then I used the Remove Duplicates tool to remove any duplicates.
|But it doesn't seem to work with Contacts, I'm afraid.|
|it works with single or multiple contacts, not with contact folders|
