Ian’s solution is probably the fastest and easiest way, and the best 
if you want to keep the messages in MailMate.

However, when I wanted to get rid of a few accounts recently, I didn’t 
want to stuff 10.000+ old messages (that I might want to *read* again 
but surely won’t *reply* to them anymore) into one of my current 
accounts. For me, it was enough to be able access them once in a while 
so I decided to use a different application for this.

For various reasons, I chose EagleFiler which costs US$ 40.
A free solution which *should* work (but I didn’t try that) is to 
export the messages from MailMate as mbox file and import them using a 
free mail client like Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You’ll need the 
for the latter.

Kind regards,
