The problem with e-mail applications is that they always use their own proprietary file formats which make it difficult for you to import and export data between clients.
This is a real pain if you're moving from say AOL Mail to Outlook and want to take your mail with you. Emailchemy can help in this situation by allowing you to read email from the closed, proprietary file formats of e-mail clients both old and new. It can then convert them to a standard, portable format that any application can use. In addition, Emailchemy also includes an embedded IMAP mail server from which any IMAP-compatible email application can download your converted mail.
Emailchemy uses a standard known as "The One True E-mail Format" - RFC-2822 which is an official Internet/ARPAnet standard for email that most clients can import. It also includes a host of other useful utilities such as an e-mail splitter, sorter and merger. Using it is pretty simple. You can start by simply selecting the type of e-mail client archive you want to convert and upload your files by browsing to them. Alternatively, you can use the Toolbox to perform set tasks such as the Google Apps Uploader which helps you upload e-mail automatically to an e-mail account hosted on Google Apps.
If you've recently changed e-mail client, or would like to take your e-mail to another client, Emailchemy is a straightforward and powerful solution.
