Today I had a client with many Notes in Apple Mail within Snow Leopard but we needed to upgrade her OS to Mountain Lion, and I know Notes don’t work in the 10.8.x Mail app anyone, as it has a separate app that handles the Notes (not so well)
When you use the migrate function on Macs these things will migrate over to the Notes app, but as I wasn’t migrating (I always rather install a fresh OS) I had to figure out a way to move all the Notes over.
One way was to drag-drop the notes one by one on to a new folder then import them, not very elegant.
The better way is to locate the
Library folder within the
Home folder, there you will find a
Mailboxes folder then the
Notes.mbox and when in Mountain Lion just use the import function.
This will bring back all the notes into Apple Mail and also into the Notes app (if you ever wanted to use it)
