Note Pad

  the golfer 22:01 23 Dec 2005

I recently did a clean instal on Win ME. Somehow my OE Inbox ended up on a file that opens in note pad. I now have no record of my inbox emails. Is there any way I can reinstall them?

If you did a clean install everything would have been wiped.

How did you save then restore your OE files?

I used Argentum Backup 1.9 which was in the august issue of PC Advisor but can't find any way to reinstall them. The inbox emails are the only thing that is missing on the computer, everything else is still there.

Search for *.dbx and note where they are.

Open OE, File|Import, browse to the folder where the .dbx files are, follow the prompts.

I searched for the *.dbx files and they are there but only on Note Pad. Can I reinstall from Argentum 1.9. In Note Pad it appears to be "gobbledegook", like algebra words.

You need to import the files into OE, as VoG™ described - it doesn't matter if you can't see the *.dbx files themselves when importing, just find the correct folder.
