How do I move my Outlook Express personal folders I have about 50 personal folders in Outlook Express. I have been successfull when moving one bye one. However, as you can imagine this will be an extremely time consuming process. I ask you is there a way to move all 50 folders simultaneously into my new Outlook 2000?
Actually I believe that Outlook's import process sucks up all the folders it finds in the directory you specify. Are you seeing otherwise?
How would you do this on a dead computer? My old computer (win 2k, current updates) crashed and will not boot. I can access the drive from another machine as a slave. I want to move everything, address book and folders.
If you can access the drive, then I'd just copy the OE store directory to a new directory on your local machine and import from there.
How do I copy an old set of emails in Outlook express 6 to a new version of outlook express 6 they are still there but I can't read them can you help
Please let me know the step by step procedure for taking a back up of all my mails stored in respective folders on a CD.
Folders have been created for different clients and the size of the entire mails in these folders exceed the CD capacity. Please advice.
When I use File, Import, Messages to import .dbx files into OE6 on XP, I am getting the following error: "No messages can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open." The MS Support site suggested putting the .dbx files into a folder named Mail and pointing to the folder above that when using the Browse button, which I did. I also have removed read only permissions on the affected folders and still get the error. Do you have any ideas?
Easy to move the OE dbx folder to another machine but what if the hard drive of the machine where OE was being used is now DEAD? No back up was done but what makes me hopeful is that our company is on a network...so maybe via our server company we can locate the email folders???
I'm distressed.. HELP
If the folders are on the hard drive, and the hard drive is truly dead, then they're gone. Just being on a company network doesn't do anything special. If you're certain that there's no backup, I don't have any good ideas for you. You might check with your IT department to see if perhaps they were doing backups without your knowledge, but that's really REALLY rare.
How can I move message rules from another computer. Both are running Windows XP and Outlook Express 6.
