View Full Version : Transferring emails from Win98 to XP

21-05-2006, 12:26 PM
I've purchased a new PC with XP. My old one was a P3 500MHz with Win98. I have found where the Outlook Express folders are on the old PC but would like to know how to transfer them to the new machine.

When I went to Files -> Export -> Messages it said that "would transfer messages from Express to MS Outlook or Exchange". What I want to do is to transfer messages from Express to Express.

I tried searching the Forum but couldn't see anything easily.

Can this be done easily? The path where they are at present is as follows:
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{655B6980-330D-11D7-A1FE-94268BE2C92E}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

I can't see anything like this on the new PC.

Thanks in anticipation.

You are doing things the hard way. Go to Softpedia.com (http://Softpedia.com) and download a program called ABF Outlook Express Backup. It is shareware. but you get thirty days use, more than enough for your purposes.

The Files and Settings Transfer Wizard on your XP CD will do the job for you
