Lost Outlook Express

  McSquibb 15:41 26 May 2006

Can anyone help me please. Yesterday I installed Firefox and Thunderbird (for which I created a new account)Ileft my older account as it was. Everything looked OK. I ran CCleaner and NTRegOpt. Am using WINXP SP2 & Norton Internet Security. Today I have switched on and have lost Outlook Express completely - How??? Not too bothered about the program itself but I have lost a lot of information stored in folders. Is there any way of getting this program back?

Search for *.dbx for the folders.

Start, Run, type in

C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe

and click OK and see if OE starts.

VOG Thanks for your help I now have OE back again with all my folders.

Do you know if it is advisable to import OE into Thunderbird? Or is it best not to do so?
