    Restoring Folders (MSO 2003)

    I had some kind of lockup on my system last night. I tried registry cleaning and defragging and System Restore but was unable to get things working properly. Fortunately I had an image from 3 days back.

    But now I want to bring my Outlook mail folders up to date.

    How can I do this and NOT end up with all kinds of duplicates? When I walk through the import process I am asked if I want to replace, allow, or do not import duplicates.

    Am I reading this correctly so that in effect, I cann n import all email and everything that is already there up until 3 days agao will be ignored?

    And will this be true for Contacts and Calendar items as well? Strangely, I've only ever imported whole files and am not certain here, and I don't have any small enough to experiment with.

    I looked through WOPR 's book on 2003, but saw nothing efinitive.

    Regards,

    I'd select the option not to import duplicates. And yes, the option you select should apply to all types of items.

    THAT's what I hoped you'd tell me.

    Thanks Hans.
