Netscape does save it's mail in a mbox either afaik...

See, the problem is not what I am able to do, but rather what a standard
user can do :) The majority of those who use IMP as their mail-client
actually have also an M$-OE installed; additionally, they don't even
have a clue what an MBOX file is and don't want to know either. All they
want to do is to download a folder to their local disc and import it
into Outlook Express (after having visited several trainings on how to
import stuff with OE).
