No, it doesn't convert from imp to mobi.

Unfortunately, the .IMP format is an 'end' one; meaning there is no known way to extract the original source (.html and images).

However, there are several ways that the ebook 'text' can be extracted to varying degrees of success, as follows:

1. Using the 'ebook viewer.exe' installed on the PC (after installing the free eBook Publisher software here), you would 'Print' using a printer driver that saves to .pdf format, then OCR the resulting .pdf.

2. With some .IMP, it is possible to open them with a text editor (like Wordpad) and 'go to the middle' of the document. There you may find the text used in the .IMP ebook. This depends on which software and compression-setting created that .IMP (does seems to work with recent eBook Publisher creations that are not internally compressed - with LZSS)

Either way, you would loose all formatting, links and all HTML codes in the process. But, would have the text to 'begin' the conversion process.

Most users creating .IMP's ALSO retain the original source for this very reason.

Hope this helps.

Edit: this has all been previously discussed before here
