Break the mail settings on the identity you want to move mail from so that it can't retrieve mail. Exit OE.
Find the Identity folder for the identity you want to move mail from, copy it to the desktop, start OE and log in using the identity to which you want to move the mail. Import it from the desktop.
Delete the identity you don't want any more.
This would work if I wanted to move all the mail from the Identity that also has a sub identity. But I just wanted to move the mail that came into the sub identity.
I don't like messing with dbx files. It's easy to screw them up. Yes, I have a backup up program (ancient little proggie that you cannot download for the last 6-7 years but it still works great to backup all identities). So, I back upped but I still don't like messing with dbx files.
But the real problem here is that I couldn't see any evidence in C:\Documents and Settings\M\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities of a dbx folder for this sub identity. It is evidently held by OE mixed in with the primary identity of which it is a sub identity. So, I would be moving/copying both the primary and sub identities if I followed your instructions. It is not easy always to figure out what identities dbx folder belongs to which identity. There are 11 of them. I had to go by file creation date and size of the folder and I couldn't see any folder that could represent the sub identity that I wanted to move the mail from.--
