Hi folks, an old member here from the days of Gandolf and friends. Sadly dont get much time to contribute any more. Here for help this time. Win32:Beagle worm has got me. Very, very clever piece of code. I have eradicated the worm but it always stopped me from booting into safe mode. I installed a free program called "BootSafe". Unfortunately I now have a situation where I cannot boot at all. The dos Safe mode, Safe mode with command prompt, Last know....appear but when selected all reboot the system. I now have a dual boot system having reinstalled the XP and can access all the programs but not my saved email docs and addresses. If you clever people could find some way for me retrieve these would be ever so grateful. Many thanks, RFB 8-)
Search your old system for files ending .dbx. These are your emails. There should be Inbox.dbx, Outbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc. There must also be Folders.dbx, this is the data telling OE how the emails are compressed. Save all these dbx files, then you can either import them into OE on your new computer, or overwrite the files of the same name in the new computer. Look for a file called (name).wab, this is your address book, and a folder called Favorites. Save these and either import or overwrite to transfer them.
Many thanks for your help folks. Did as suggested and I have retrieved my address book but the mail is a mess, going to take a while to sort out. I`ll back it up then reformat (it`s about time) sort it out at my leisure. Thanks again to all who helped. RFB 8-)
