Re: Moving Outlook Express mail folders to another computer
OK, here goes... If you are running XP at the mo, you need to follow this
path (substitute username with your username obviously)
assuming its the C: drive you have installed windows on...

C:\Documents and Settings\username\local settings\Application
Data\Identities\{computer generated sequence of numbers and letters
here}\microsoft\

In this you will find a folder called Outlook Express (to find this path you
need to enable hidden files and folders to be visible).
Copy the complete folder onto a CD.
Once Your new pc is up and running, open Windows mail (vista) or Outlook
Express (XP and previous), and click the File menu, then point the mouse to
import and choose messages.
You will get a pop up window asking where to import from and you need to
choose outlook express 6 and import form an OE6 store directory. Then point
the browse button to the CD containing the copied folder, and click the
folder once then click select folder. If you want everything including
folder structure then choose All folders. In Win Mail it will appear once
imported below the main mail boxes installed by the OS under a folder named
Imported Folder. In XP it integrates the inbox with the stored inbox but
adds in both cases the seperate folders you may have created to store mail.

Sorry its long winded, but it does work! Also if you have any errors in the
old outlook express database it will find them for you and repair or remove
damaged messages that cant be imported - leaving you with a nice sparkly
mail program
