Hi In a few days I should have a nice new PC from Evesham computers. Only thing is I'm not too sure how to transfer all my old emails, email addresses, I.E. favourites etc from my old PC to the new one. To complicate matters further, the old PC uses Windows 98SE and the new one will have XP. Is it poss. to swap or better to just start afresh? Thanks in advance.
E-mails and contact are stored in .dbx files with names like Inbox.dbx, Sent.dbx etc. Search for Inbox.dbx on your harddrive to find the folder in which these files are stored. Check the date last modified as sometimes more than one version is found.
When you install OE on new pc, the same file names are created. Find their location as above and replace with the .dbx files from your old pc.
