setup outlook on the 2k machine, do a search for the *.dbx files, take a note of their loaction, copy the win98 ones over them

Open Outlook Express - go to File - Import - Massages - then follow the dialogue through. You will need to browse to the folder that contains the .dbx files, not to the .dbx files themselves.

Massages - the mind boggles - Messages, of course!
