I want to import some email account data backed up on an external drive into my new PC but don't know where these files are?

If I can import the data then I won't have to type it all in manually again.

Many thanks.

What data, eg. Address book?

It's my mail account settings for each email address I'm after.

Nah.. You will have to set it up manualy...

I think you can import account details. There is a the option to do this in Outlook Express. It's just a case of knowing where the data files are.

How did you create the Backup? Did you just drag files or what

Do a Search on the Ex for .DBX files these are the ones you need

In Search type your Drive letter then *.DBX

Thanks folks but I've typed it all in again now for each account.

For the future if you go to OE>tools>accounts and export the highlighted account(s) separately to a known location, you can just import later to save typing
