Outlook Express Import

  Dasmad 22:49 06 Oct 2005

I'm struggling to import old messages made under win98se from a backup cd into winXP on my new laptop.(OE 6 in both cases)
it seems only to want to import files from the "drafts" folder although it sets up the folder structure as per the backup, yet tells me that it has completed import of all the messages from all folders.
what's going on........?

So Try copying them to the Drafts folder on the Hard Drive. You also need to change the Attributes Archive. As on the CD they will have been changed to read only and you will not be able to use them without. You have to right click the files or Inbox and under Properties you will find it
