Transfer old Outlook emails to Outlook Express
can't find any details

 4:24 am on Jul 3, 2004 (gmt 0)

Hi, I've managed to transfer emails from OE to OE but this is my first time needing to transfer Ms Outlook 97 emails to an OE 6.

I don't know where how Outlook stores it's emails, therefore can't find or figure how to transfer many mails that have been in my Outlook's programme.

Thanks for tips & advice

One easy way of finding where they are is to search for a unique piece of text or subject in an email. I can't remember where Outlook stuffs the things just off hand, but I've found them before using the search method.

You could consider checking out Thunderbird... you always know where files are with that.

MS Outlook stores your emails in .pst format. To find the location, use the Windows search tool.

To import MS Outlook emails into OE, go to File -> Import -> Messages. Select MS Outlook and follow the instructions.

Outlook Express e-mail is harder to restore if it gets corrupted. At least with Outlook, you have a free scanpst.exe software that can repair your PST file. I wouldn't switch.
