How do you copy old messages, folders etc from outlook express 5 on a machine running win95 to express 5 on a new machine with win me.
Have tried the export command but just get error messages.
Thanks,
Don

If both computers are using the same version of OE then you can just copy the files containing the messages from the old computer to the new one.
To find out where they are stored look under the advanced tab of the options, there will be an option to change the stored location, don't actualy change it but it will give you the path to the current location, then do the same on the new computer to find out where to copy them to.
I have used this before.
Since you are moving to a new computer why not get a decent e-mail program, and avoid all the problems associated with outlook. Eudora can import outlook express messages.
