    Transfer mails OE -> Outlook (2000)

    I installed Outlook for my better half, but left OE installed, without thinking. She has been using both for sending and receiving mail for a couple of weeks, and is now appropriately in confusion. I'm wondering if there is a simple way for me to export her OE mail folders and "merge" them into her Outlook, so that I might then be able to remove OE altogether and restore things to a normal level of mayhem & chaos. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    In Outlook, select File | Import and Export.
    Select Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next.
    Select Outlook Express.
    Tick the Import mail check box.
    Click Next.
    Click Finish.

    Thanks Hans. Sounds simpler than I'd envisaged. Just to verify though, will this leave all the original Outlook messages intact?

    Yes, it will add the imported messages to the existing ones.
