We have successfully import the mingle forum (server A - Mingle Forum) to our simple-press forum (server B- SimplePress). Thanks.

We have another simplepress forum on another server (different domain - Server C - SimplePress ),
is it possible to import it to our existing simplepress (server B) which is containing the imported Mingle Forum ?

not really - at least not without manual work...

keep in mind that simple press and any forum is based on users... so any forum information is directly tied to the users of that site...

so we can easily import from one site to a new simple press install, because the users are brought over...  however, if you try merging in two sites, the users wont correspond...  references to the user id in any of the forum data now wont correspond to a proper user on the new site...

so you can bring over the other simple press data (directly from the tables) but then you will have to adjust the user ids in the forum info to correspond to a user in the current site or make them guest posts...

hope that makes sense...
