    Obtaining e-mails from Outlook Express (2000)

    I'm using Outlook 2000 configured for Internet Mail with my Yahoo account. How can I copy some old e-mails from Outlook Express? I presume I need to Export and Import them in some format?

    Also, on my stand-alone setup Outlook Today is sub-titled (Personal Folders) in the Folders List. How can I alter this to show my name? Thanks, Andy.

    For the first question, go to Outlook Express and select File>Export>Messages...

    You can then choose which folders you want to copy to Outlook

    The answer to you second question

    Right click on the title bar where it says "Personal Folders - Outlook Today" and from the options that appear select Properties for "Outlook Today"

    On the General Tab click the "Advanced..." button

    Change the name displayed in the Name field and click OK to save. The next time you display Outlook Today it will show the new name.

    This was taken from Outlook 2003 but hopefully it should be the same or very similar for 2000.

    Re: Obtaining e-mails from Outlook Express (2000)

    Thanks very much for this - I always archive my mail for each year, copy it to a CD and also put it on my C Drive - this keeps my exchange folder to a managable size. Only problem was that I would have four or five folders all labeled Archive and I would have to go through each one to find the year I was after. Have now renamed them to reflect the year of the mail items - works like a charm <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
