How can I get imported mail back into standard inboxes? 10.3 to 10.5

Advertisement
I'm moving from 10.3 to 10.5 and have managed to copy all my mail and settings over from old system manually. Then used Import to point mail to the mboxes. Now all my mail is in Imported mail folder. It's a good start but is there a way to get it all back into the main Inbox so I can carry on as before? I have 4 accounts. Can't seem to drag&drop. Could make new folders as suggested in another thread but can only create folders in On My Mac section. Any suggestions? Weirdly the imported mail has duplicated all the folders (iboxes/outboxes etc) and only one of them actually contains mails...

Of everything I read nothing mentioned the simplest way of selecting a folder in the import folder e.g. Inbox for an account and then selecting all the mails in that folder and using the Message > Move To menu command. I hope this helps somebody.
