I did have a dual boot setup, C: to Win98Se and E: to WinXP.

I now have WinXP on C: and also on E:. I no longer have a dual boot facility.

On E: in Outlook Express I have some e-mail sitting there but cannot figure out how to get to it. I cannot find any references to the Inbox or any e-mail entries and I really do not want to play around with bootini.

Anyone know how I can re-access the E-mail on E:?

Ta, Bryan.

There are a couple of things you can do. If you have no email messages in OE on your C: partition you could search for the .dbx files on the E: partition and copy/move them to replace the ones on the C: drive.

If you do have emails in OE on the C: drive you can still move them provided you create a temporary folder within OE and move all the emails into that folder prior to copying/moving the .dbx files.

The other thing you can do is import the messages from OE in C: from E:.

If you are wanting to keep your email messages on E: you can change the message store folder within OE's tools, Maintenance options.

It would be advisable to make backups of all your .dbx files prior to any changes, just in case.
