Last year I backed up my OE emails (dbx) by copying them to a selfmade folder on a CD, as I needed to reinstall XP. I've only just found them again and wondered if there was any way that I can merge these older emails with the newer emails, as it keeps asking me if I want to replace the current ones?
Technotiger - now that's something worth looking at. If I placed all my new folders in a new sub-folder I could then get the old ones back and then copy, individually, the new ones into them. (Good One)! Cheers.
Wak - I'll check out OEView if the above doesn't work. Thanks.
Marg7 - I'll also check your one out for future ref.
Just to let you know that it worked. I made a new sub-folder called AAA and dragged all my current folders into it. I then imported the old folders back into OE and simply (or laboriously) opened the AAA folder and dragged all the new emails from the various folders (obviously checking their date) back into their old folders and then finally I deleted the the AAA folder(hope that makes sense). Here's a tip though, a mug of tea and some Jammie Dodgers helps things along. Thanks to all.
This helps if you have a partition or 2 hard drives.
Create a folder on the partition or 2nd drive, call it email, open outlook express/Tools/Options/Maintenance/Store folder/Change and browse to the new folder and click ok. Also, export addresses and accounts to the same folder.
You can now format 'c' drive and always recover emails.
