Good stuff, clearly explained, that’s why I’m asking this: do you know of a simple procedure that would allow transferring all my mails, including attachments (some 10 years old) from OS X Mail to GMail? And keeping the folders’ organization?

Sorry to bother you if this has already been explained elsewhere but I did a lot of googling and couldn’t find the procedure.

Thanks and Best Regards
