You'll soon drop Apple Mail once you realize its flaws. Get Outlook.

Mail.app does have its flaws but it depends on how hard you push it and what you expect out of it because right now Outlook 2011 has its own set of problems that really need addressing - I've found for example Exchange support on Mail.app and Office365 less problematic for example. End of the day it is about choosing the application that sucks the least and running with it - when it comes to Office I'm going to hold off till we the public hear about the next version because right now it is a Carbon/Cocoa frankenstein whose flaws are so many the only saving grace is file compatibility (and even that isn't perfect).

Sorry, I didn't realize expecting an email written in a custom font to arrive with custom fonts as"pushing it". Try it and you'll see that the nice email you wrote only looks nice in your sent items. The receiving end only gets the default font.

Making account in imap is (no hard feelings) a waste of time when you have thousands of emails to transfer. First I have to upload all the emails one by one to imap and after creating an account in apple mail, download all these mails.

any other ideas.

True unfortunately. Managing attachments appropriately is impossible with Mail.

You will understand why if you use it and get replies that your emails are incomplete. Took me 3 months to realize and I switched immediately :)

I think that this is a problem with HTML email in general, not Mail.app as a client.

Mail on OS X and iOS were actually some of the first email clients to support @font-face.

I send emails to communicate, not to 'express my creativity' through font types - why someone needs anything other than the standard font type for sending emails god only knows.

Apple Mail is fine as a mail client. It does the job - I've used it for years with no major issues. I've never had anyone complain about attachments/incomplete emails, and I have no intention of ever using multiple fonts in an email. You shouldn't be using non-standard fonts in email anyway. Under most circumstances my emails go as plain text - some people (myself included) still use CLI clients on a regular basis.

If you're coming from outlook it'll probably be a breath of fresh air :p

O2M is by far the most reliable.

Maybe because font types are not used only to "express your creativity", but rather to format content or create a layout. Think further away than Comic Sans MS.

Again, this has nothing to do with Mail.app as a client. This is a limitation of HTML emails. All clients are affected. You can't embed a font into an HTML email. So, if your recipient doesn't have the font installed on their machine, their email client will default to something else.

Found my solution, a software pst converter pro.
Though cost me a few bucks but the work was done without any hassel.

Thank you for support

This is not true anymore with HTML5 / CSS3. I think we were talking about general fonts here though, not specialized ones.

Mail client support for HTML lags behind browsers.

If your recipient has the font that you've used in your HTML email, they see the text as intended. Obviously. It's not a Mail.app issue.
