Woohoo...it worked for me!
I've been scratching my head over this one for a week, and the drag
and drop worked perfectly. I just highlighted the messages (some 8500
of them) on my D drive and dragged them to my inbox. They were copied
from that drive into Windows Mail properly and in about two minutes I
had all 8700 messages sitting there.

Thanks for the tip Steve...never even thought about dragging them
Copying the files into the folder didn't work for me either, but drag
and drop worked.
