I've got a mac book pro but I've started working in an office where everyone use windows so I've got myself a windows laptop. I need to be able to read my emails on this laptop though so before I spend hours googling this can anyone suggest a way of moving my emails to outlook without them being corrupted?
Someone at work suggested this Mac Mail to Outlook Converter - Transfer Mac OS emails to MS Windows but I thought I'd check on here first.

I don't think you need any such app, sounds like spam to me. If your email is out in the cloud somewhere (IMAP) can't you just put your settings into outlook and pull the email down? No conversion/corruption issue.

No, I can't, each individual file needs to be converted. If I try to export anything it doesn't seem to work, I just end up with a folder which I know should be mbox but isn't.
I just want to be able to export them all together without having to do each one individually.
But thanks for your help

If work lets you use your macbook, perhaps Mac Office Outlook would be fine to use for work email on their network.

If you have to use Windows Outlook, then how are you getting work emails on your mac now, with OS X Mail? Or do you have another email account with old emails, not for work, that you need on Windows Outlook?
