    Importing Messages under Outlook Express 6 - WinXP

    I have just upgraded to Win XP Pro from Win ME and have previous email messages (from Outlook Express 5) backed up in a folder on the hard drive. When I try to import these messages into Outlook Express 6, the option to import messages from OE 5 is missing - OE4 is available as an option, as is OE6, but OE5 is missing.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    The format for OE5 and OE6 is the same. You can use import from OE6.

    thanks Ian - I did try this, but I just get a message saying the folder selected contains no messages (although it does, because I can view them with explorer).

    DAB:

    Did you use these procedures to backup your data?

    Hi Ian

    Yes, I did look at that KB article and tried it, but to no avail - I still got the same message. However, there is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=oe&Number=87809&page=1&view =collapsed&sb=5&o=0&fpart=>this entry</A> under the Outlook Express section of the lounge (under the Office area). This worked and I have now imported my messages successfully.

    Thanks for your help

    Doug
