@lapcatsoftware I mean drag-import to EagleFiler, which tells it to convert the .mbox folder hierarchy of .emlx files into an mbox file.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to lapcatsoftware

@lapcatsoftware Or drag-import the .mbox folder from the Finder.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

@lapcatsoftware You could try importing them with EagleFiler’s capture key to generate a fresh mailbox file.

@shepgo This recent iMore article about the “best USB-C hubs” doesn’t actually list any that increase the number of USB-C ports.

@shepgo It only adds one port, has 1.7 stars, and is “coming soon.”

@shepgo As I recall, it didn’t take this many years for there to be USB 2.0 hubs available. Also, USB 2.0 was connector-compatible.
