Anyone done this?
Just got a client away from crappy incredimail and is now on Win Live Mail (for now) but he wants his 1700+ emails out of incredimail. Been googling about last 90 minutes but just finding paid converters for $49~$99 USD that Im not going to buy to do one conversion and probably never use it again.

Any help/knowledge/input would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Ian

Ta, both links take me to sources I have been to - and take me to paid programmes. Thanks for your time and research, it is appreciated.

Just select all and forward them from his/her old mail program.

Awants his 1700+ emails out of incredimail.
Why do people keep emails??!! If the info is so important create a file, save the actual data or whatever it is.
I never did this, if they wanted crap from Incredimail they had to do that themselves...proper email programs that you can export from, fine...

Looks like there's a way to do it with Thunderbird (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Importing_from_Incredimail). Maybe use it as an intermediary? - of course, you could just stick with Thunderbird anyway & be better off...

All arranged by client in folders, so makes it even harder to export. Hes my only client who used incredimail, so hopefully I will have none from now on!! The only times I have ever had to work on his computer were to fix something to do with incredimail, glad I finally have him away from it (I hope).
Thanks for everyones help. Thanks Mushhead, I'll check it out, it could be a useful stepping stone or solution. Cheers.

LOL, that's a good look, getting emails from an accountant with all those crappy animations tagged on. Classic.

A business that uses Incredimail. Classic. Deserves everything he gets.

No, sorry, lame excuse.
Do you know how often mail fails?! If he has info he wants to keep, stick it in a document, save that and backup on more than 1 drive.
And Incredimail....geez. Besides...accountants...right....

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/6412102/Fraudster-accountant-loses-disputeShort of a hard drive failure, I've never had a client lose any email (or that I couldnt recover), so I would say not often. And I have no idea what those 2 links have to do with exporting from incredimail sorry.
