Moving OE messages between PC's

  [DELETED] 10:15 26 Nov 2003

Just got a new PC, but want to move my messages from old 98SE PC to new XP machine. I've managed to export the address book to floppy, but the messages can only be exported to MS Outlook or Exchange, according to Windows. Any ideas, Cheers TR

I think with 98+ if you 'find' *.dbx files these are all contents of oe and just copy from find tool.

Is to copy the contents of your mail folder (found under TOOLS, OPTIONS, MAINTENANCE, STORE FOLDER in Outlook Express)to disk or CD and then past the contents into your equivalent folder when you have set OE up on your XP machine. This will take across all folders, messages and newsgroups - there are utilities out there that are intended to backup your mail folders but I've had some near misses with these...
