Before reformatting Hdd, I exported all emails and folders to a folder in My Docs and then put the whole of my docs onto CD as a backup.
Now Having reinstalled XP I cannot get Outlook Express to import the info either from My Docs or CD even though I browse the correct path and you can see the folders and items if you open the relevant directory.
If the email folders are on a CDR or CDRW they will be marked as 'read only'. Make a copy to your desktop and then select properties by right clicking with the mouse. Take the tick out of 'read only' and try again.
